Is it comedy - or tragedy? Short prose pieces, dialogues, and the memories of a great theatre director.
How do we become who we are? What makes for real friendship and how do we keep dead and living dibbuks, or devils, from controlling us?
Luc Bondy tells of the temptations and frights of childhood, of his school days in a strict, Calvinist boarding school, of fragile friendships and the death of his father, as well as of artistic families and a director's everyday life. His memories are nothing less than an autobiography. In delightful short pieces, ironic dialogues, dream images and stories, this famous theatre man tells of comic, tragic and mad moments – the passions and mistakes that make up a life
Bondy's writing is elegant, without being affected. He achieves a dreamlike balance between observing life and creating poetry.
