About this title


The book begins with the image of the rising/descending ferris wheel. In it a man reflects on his whole existence-- his childhood, adulthood, fantasies. There are no boundaries between these. The little boy wonders-- Where is your grandfather? Are you only you when you're with him? When the boys are teasing you? When the girls are sorry for you? The rug on which his grandfather is lying becomes a dark pond in which he is swimming. In the woods one point differs from another only because a car is seen in the background. The house glides by the ship or the ship the house. Nothing exists except in motion.
