This heart of gold of his

I haven´t finished the story yet. At the moment I am still reading “La mecánica del corazón” and I like it. The story was written by the singer of a French band Mathias Malzieu and this is not his only book.

There is a kid with a delicate heart. His midwife becomes a mother to him and much more. She helps Jack-this is his name- to take care of his heart. Magic, love, impossible feelings and tenderness are all around the story. This writing reminds me the fable of a philosophical little prince whose author was the French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

As I told before I haven´t read the whole story yet but I have such a good impression that I can´t help writing a post about it. There is a ballerina who might have been inspired in that metaphorical Rilke´s poem about a Spanish gypsy stirring over herself like a single match on fire…


… I just read the story 2 minutes ago! I fancy these characters : Jack, Miss Acacia, Madeleine and Méliès. Symbolism, poetry and metaphors live in there. In the end a surprising event turns fiction into reality.
