Editorial Reviews

Bridges
Persuasive...exquisite...heroic...
Franca Gerli
If, as Umberto Eco writes and as Steven Carter seems to prove, every 'narrative world' enjoys the same dignity of existence as every other world, then why shouldn't the world of the reader, with all its silent presences, be included among Carter's narrated ones? Understood this way, Carter's book becomes a profound, potentially never-ending text that involves the personal experience of whomever reads it. 'The Nothing That Is and The Nothing That Is Not' is one of those works, very rare but very necessary, that underscores in serious fashion the human need to re-discover the precious space of our authenticity and spirituality.
