Rock Crystal / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Pushkin Press Ltd.
This seemingly simple fable of two children lost in an icy landscape is eloquent in its innocence but is implicit with the fragility of life and the inevitability of death. This quasi-fairy tale speaks of village life in the high mountains but is also a parable of belief and faith. Rock Crystal is a Christmas story and a story about the heart of the ice, the crystal.
