520    "The writer and artist Frédéric Pajak was ten when he 
       began to "dream of a work that would mingle words and 
       images...bits of adventure, collected memories, sentences,
       phantoms, forgotten heroes, trees, the stormy sea," but it
       was not until he was in his forties that this dream took 
       form as The Wind of Things. The utterly original book that
       he produced is a memoir born of reading and a meditation 
       on the lives and ideas, the motivations, feelings, and 
       fates of some of Pajak's heroes: Samuel Beckett and the 
       artist Bram van Velde, and, especially, Walter Benjamin, 
       whose travels to Moscow, Naples, and Ibiza, whose 
       experiences with hashish, whose faltering marriage and 
       love affairs and critique of modern experience Pajak re-
       creates and reflects on in word and image. Pajak's moody 
       black-and-white drawings accompany the text throughout, 
       though their bearing on it is often indirect and all the 
       more absorbing for that. Between word and image, the 
       reader is drawn into a mysterious space that is all 
       Pajak's as he seeks to evoke vanished histories and to 
       resist a modern world more and more given over to a 
       present without a past"--|cProvided by publisher.
