His essays complement the eccentric quality of Pitol. Both in this book and in the previous one, The art of the flight, the order of the genres ends up by vanishing. The essays are written and organized as novelistic chapters; The author's concern is to share the pleasure produced by his readings, his travels, his adventures with language, with the scenarios and, above all, the infinite passion for the plots that come from childhood. We return to travel with him the wide avenues, but also the shadowy paths of the English novel, the Germanic domain, the Slavic, and other new presences.
