Loneliness has many faces - it can be a moment of sadness and the result of bad choices or some abandonment, but it can also arise as a gift for us to enjoy our own company, seize the silence and meditate on life. The critic August Nemo has selected for this book seven short stories by great authors that explore the different ways of experiencing loneliness.
