#almamahler is nothing but an endless repetition of music whose origin is live that, in and of itself, is sufficient basis for living. Love in an instant that lasts an eternity.” These words uttered by the writer himself #sashodimoski and I think it beautifully encapsulates this tiny book. The book, but more importantly the writing itself feels like an enchanting #song. It’s trying both to please and to make you more and more addicted to its lure. At the end, it’s a won contest. The reader can’t help but to internalize and ultimately feel what #Alma is going through. It’s a tale of unrelenting love as the ultimate sacrifice without any rewards. Alma is both brutally honest and self diluted in a #lovegame she lost before she even began to play. It reminded me of other stories of recrimination and guilt when one person in the relationship gives up her/his life for the other. Thanks to #dalkeyarchivepress for always featuring these amazing writers and their outstanding stories. #recommended#macedonianliterature#macedonialiteratureseries #vienna #paris#gustavmahler #mahler #marriedtoagenius#lovestories #mistakes #wien #abusive#dimoski #obsession
