IN THE WINKING OF A HERON’S EYE
The publication by L'Atalante of Jean-Claude Dunyach’s short stories continues with a seventh collection. As usual, he sets the subtle fresco of our emotions against a backdrop of offbeat and imaginatively crazy worlds… He writes about our fears, our fantasies, our ambitions and our inadequacies. And he arouses in us such unfamiliar sensations, both agreeable and painful. Each of J-C Dunyach’s short stories modifies the world that comes filtering through our eyes. Disconcerting and triumphant.
“This collection is, implicitly or explicitly, about magic… Or rather my idea of magic, which isn’t necessarily a classic vision (and certainly not that of conventional fantasy.)
I often talked about magic with Ayerdhal. Not the magic of an illusionist or the exterior forces manipulated by thaumaturgy, which neither of us believed in, but the magic born in the hearts and minds of men.”
