In the mystical silence of the night

Written by

Somebody leaves his home in the middle of the night, ready for the big adventure. We don’t know where he’s going, but apparently neither does he. He will meet some strange people –or is he the strange one ?- and a speaking duck and they will continue together their trip to nowhere. But the police will stop them and they will be conducted to prison where they cannot stay as one of the words they use, “Democracy” doesn’t exist in the Dictionary.

 A beautiful initiatory tale for social life, politics and friendship, which combines humor, sarcasm and surrealism. The fairytale-like story In the mystical silence of the night… is the first of the five stories belonging to the series The City, which all together compose a mythical puzzle.
