insight in darkness
by bonzo on June 28, 2007Coelho, a writer of mystical and grand perportions, with sparkling fairy tales suitable for anyone's spiritual journey. This piece, as he says himself, is not of the sort. He tackles a topic of great importance and taboo. Prostitution, the oldest profession in the world, is not commonly looked at through Coelho's traditional story telling lens. Nor is explicit sexuality. Despite the negative connotations that can be put on both these subjects, they are an integral and imperative part of humanity and the human journey. Animal journey. Spiritual journey. Our walk is not all sunshine and roses. And there can be beauty in the grotesque. Coelho does a magnificent job iluminating the importance of the darkest parts of our existance, creating the sublime.
