Volodymyr Yermolenko. Daleki blyzki. Essays On Philosophy and Literature. (The Distant and Close)
"The Distant and Close" is the second book by the Ukrainian philosopher and journalist Volodymyr Yermolenko. This book is about Rousseau, Casanova, Hoffmann, Flaubert, Derrida, Sontag, Barthes, Gary and, at the same time, about intimacy, pleasure, invisibility, loss, slowness, and sensuality. This book is about people and their lives, their pain and joy and, at the same time, about the senses that these people constellate from their experience. This book is about how to turn weakness into strength, and a flaw into an advantage. About how the distant classics can suddenly become close as friends, as relatives."
Let us add: one reads it literally in one breath, it is written lightly and thoughtfully at the same time. And one immediately feels the desire to (re-)read almost everything that is discussed here. It inspires for searching.
