Listen to the story:
Or as in the story Vultures, which digs deep into the problems of working life. Where the fear of change can generate the most peculiar excuses and activities to support an outdated configuration. This is particularly evident at a time when digitalisation and globalisation and so on, are building the foundations for a new form of society beyond the dust of the industrial society.
Other social phenomena hidden in the Bordertraveller stories are borderless love and its anomalies. Or how you like Martin Luther can point out irregularities and then become the prisoner of your own story and the consequences in a social transformation that is now taking place. And then Greece, the cradle of European civilization, whose mystique and beauty became the inspiration for beginning to write this book.
The entire collection of short stories is framed by an atmosphere of salt, as it begins with A taste of salt on a peaceful day on the beach and ends with a shipwreck that leads back to land with tentative steps. We must all make this journey because the old industrial society is today a lost world.
