Some libraries burn, the Library of Babel - never!
The Library of Babel is the limitless world of books and dialogues between them. Somewhere in this library is also the biblical story of David and Bathsheba. King David liked Bathsheba and seduced her. Then he murdered her husband Uriah, and took her as his wife. From this "sinful" marriage the wise King Solomon was born - the brilliance of the ancient Jewish esoteric grandeur and its depth.
The book "Love Stories from the Library of Babel" recreates six variations of the famous Bible story. Exercises in style, but rather exercises in sense. Investigation of passion and betrayal, fidelity, love and death...
Biblical love drama is told through specific stylistic and artistic worlds of six great writers of the twentieth century - Jaroslav Hašek, Franz Kafka, Andrei Platonov, Jorge Luis Borges, Jerome D. Salinger and Robert M. Pirsig.
The story is the same.
But the stories about it and lessons learned are always different.
So people continue to write.
