Read full description of the books Heart's Wings & Other Stories:Written over a span of 40 years, this collection features the short stories of British writer Gabriel Josipovici. Unique and intriguing, the narratives take place in a variety of settings—including a seedy London nightclub in the 1960s, a brothel in Hamburg during World War I, and an airport in Bukovina in 1942—and explore not only Shakespeare’s mind as he writes Twelfth Night, but also Jorge Borges’ dreams of Finland and the Kalevala, a 19th-century work of epic poetry. Josipovici’s clear and simple prose will captivate academics as well as fans of highly original writing.
