KHOP is an uncompromising romantic, living on borrowed time, and stubbornly trying to stick by the one he loves, the one who will at one time invariably leave the house forever on creaking floorboards and in the mutual understanding of unspoken words. Yet, there may sometimes be splendor in loneliness and at certain moments in our lives there may arise an urge even to ask the ultimate question, but what this question is remains in the dark.
Whether the meaning of these 50 pieces is really as easy to grasp as the author (perhaps ironically) suggests, is for each separate reader to decide, for some they will read like pure poetry, for others the quality of these texts – each containing exactly 50 words – will be determined by their philosophical value. To my mind these literary pieces show a delightful mixture of both poetic and existential truths.
Natural scenery and animals form a regular background to the thoughts and scenes described. Heavy rains and mudpools, crystalline streams with purifying eddies, long and winding roads, clouds and birds and especially horses. Cormac McCarthy would fully approve of these 50 Easy Pieces.
