To read this book is like being swept on a poetical adventure into the land where fairy-tale and modern life co-exist. In his latest book, Martin Shaw once again dare us to step into the liminal space of myth and legend, which he claims to be as real as the world we normally inhabit. It is there that we meet our “wild twin”; our slightly naughty but always well-meaning inner child, which call us to re-examine our sometimes all too civilised daily selves. This book does not give any clear and easy answers, but instead inspires us to dream and be more adventurous, which is perhaps needed in this day and age.
