Are we faithful to ourselves when we create something, or we rather create ourselves? When we live our own lives and when we become hollow machines with repetitive movements by adopting others' ideas as ours? Where is the line between our authentic existence and fiction? These are the universal issues that permeate the stories in this book. Abstract aesthetic and existential themes are deployed by unusual subjects: a jazz musician touches God, but nobody realizes it; a talented artist creates a masterpiece under the name of his mentor; an infamous man seeks the meaning of life in Japanese a surreal forest; a dictator dreams of power over art. These stories open wide horizon of perception and interpretation just as the translucent reflections swirling in them.
