The encounter with the island came as a shock. There was something there I had completely forgotten about while living in the city. We walked, talked and worked in almost complete solitude. Around us only the quiet but overwhelming presence of nature. And above all, the light: strong enough to blind me and to penetrate my thoughts.

Consisting of two interconnected books, Part of an Archipelago is an elliptical and mysterious account of a short visit to a  Mediterranean island. Through the use of different narrative strategies and intertextual references,  the work combines and plays with different layers of interpretation while blurring the lines between personal experience, memory and imagination.
