Publication Date: 01/08/2012
El abuelo esta en su jardin. No, el no siempre fue jardinero. Tambien fue un nino que se crio en una granja, tuvo varicela, dio su primer beso, fue un soldado, y sobre todo fue un artista. Pero ahora ya no recuerda muchas cosas. . . Por eso pasa las horas en su jardin, podando los setos y arbustos. Y gracias a eso su bisnieto puede revivir el pasado del abuelo al recorrer las caprichosas formas de los arboles. Visitar el jardin del abuelo es habitar y aproximar lugares que cualquiera pensaria inalcanzables. Un libro tan enigmatico como bello, que explora las formas de comunicacion que vencen al envejecimiento y el olvido. Un libro para leer, y releer, con los hijos, los nietos y los bisnietos. Grandpa is in his garden. No, he wasn't always a gardener. He was also a boy who grew up on a farm, had chicken pox, had his first kiss, became a soldier, and above all, was an artist. But now he doesn't remember much. That's why he spends his time in his garden, pruning the hedges and shrubs. As a result, his great-grandson can relive his past by studying the whimsical shapes of the trees. Visiting grandpa's garden means inhabiting places he never thought possible. This book, both enigmatic and beautiful, explores forms of communication that supercede aging and forgetting.
