Among the increasing number of fiction works, Angel Wagenstein's works are a kind of "heavy artillery." They revive the impaired truth that prose, and the novel in particular, must cover the meaning that the French put into the original belles lettres (fine literature): to write and summarize human characters and dramas, ups and downs, to unravel and collect history and modernity, to exude wisdom and love of life, to purify, ennoble and elevate us.

Reaching a patriarchal (or, according to the Bible, Methuselah) age, Angel Wagenstein stubbornly refused to be calm and old-fashionedly decorous. Dynamic and restless in nature, he is like Figaro - here and there. And probably he, like the hero of Isaac Babel, dreams of the impossible international of good people.
