"I want to stay on a remote unknown island, not for the sake of sagacity, but to accompany my loneliness. On that full moon night, Mozart played the first symphony he ever composed on violin for me on the crystal-white terrace of Salzburg Castle.
After that, I started believing in the melody of God.
However, I know they will never award my residence the status of a World Heritage Site. No issues, but they still don't know that it is that place which God often visits to drink with me and to share some lighter moments."
By turns witty, acerbic, surreal and playfully philosophical, the thirteen short stories in verse form that make up The Hostages of God show the full extent of their author's unique world-view and wonderfully expansive imagination.
