I AM NOT HERE FOR MYSELF


First of all, I'd like to thank my good friend and excellent poet, Magalie, for her invitation to present her last poetry book. It's an honour. How would I present it? Well, it's a mystic poetry book, the same as my last novel "When the last leaf said goodbye while falling". Yes, Magalie's poems reproduce in verse what my own characters express by means of actions. Actually, if I had to tell the plot of Magalie's poetry book I should say it is parallel to what Sophia, the protagonist of my novel, experiences during an autumn she spends in Greenland watching seals. The message I try to transmit is: nature is out there, you guys, just open your eyes and see; Magalie understood it perfectly, because she did read my novel. Furthermore, I can't forget to mention the description of colours that Magalie makes, which is a variation of what I describe in my novel, as well, when seals and pinguins try to open paths through the snow. But I haven't come here to speak about my book, oh no, but about Magalie's. So, let me tell you just one thing: read first my book first and then Magalie's in order to follow a logical order in her poetical thought. She deserves it. She's a great poet. Thank you very much, Magalie, for this occasion to introduce you and your amazing poetry book...
