Where Sam Moore has the forest mood. Would he have changed air? [..] It is through a looking glass that Sam observes sporangia and other words containing colours. It is there that the contemplative slips into the adventure novel, stumbling over the syntax in his removable heels. S/he hurtles down metaphors and motors back mechanical scenarios by speculating on over-obvious coincidences. […] As Sam is a mobile and (un)fragmented character; and likeother essay writers, his complete works are distilled into excerpts while the story continues to grow. He aspires (to) everything: art, life, the art of living; That’s why the book starts with a vacuum cleaner and there is always wind in the poppies.
