A short novel, allegoric to the christmas tale of a man, in this case a boy, and a woman, a girl in this story, looking for shelter to give birth and welcome nowhere. Reflections to their parents, their situation and the hopelessness of their future. Suggestiont that the boy goes all the way when refused shelter again, entisingly predicted by a man telling "you haven't done anything wrong, yet" .... and still, a new suggestion at the end that all will go well.
In what has to be an exorcizing writing style, full of repetition, endless sentences and a lot of unspoken feelings. But also some things are repeated and repeated, over and over again ... and this takes for me the magic away, it's like the author tries to hard, tries to get the atmosphere too expressive. The effect, in my humble opinion, is that it takes away the power of the events. There are more powerfull gripping short stories out there. Try Silvio D'Arzo for instance. ( )
