Francesca recommends books! | Manolo for the Big Girl

Francesca recommends books!

Francesca has been re-reading the superfantastic play Life Is a Dream by the incomparable 17th-century Spanish playwright Pedro Calderon de la Barca.

This story thrills and satisfies and provokes thought every time.

It serves as a fascinating precursor (and stylistic counterpoint to)  The Matrix, which is one of Francesca’s favorite movies – not (only) for its action and special effects, but because of the existential questions it raises.

Perhaps it is time, too, to recommend Philosophy for Dummies.

   

Happy reading and thinking!
