In Search of the Essence of Place (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Armed only with his poetic sensibility, Petr Kral sets out to explore our relationship with the places that we inhabit, and with the apparently unremarkable everyday objects which often inform and enrich our lives.
Kral bears witness to Flaubert's observation that "in order for something to become interesting, we simply have to look at it for a long time." He reveals, not only the inner life-the very essence-of mundane objects and places, but also simple yet profound truths about ourselves.
