welcome to meta-fiction
5 April 03, 2019
Vivian Amberville is a form of meta-fiction that captures the various facets of imagination in a unique manner. It speaks about the responsibilities that come with engaging our imagination in becoming free-willed and then manifestation. In this novel, the mind (as an imagining) realm has also an inner will which is solely molded by the spirit of each Weaver. By doing this we can say that it has an ethical dimension that questions our mode of being in the world through our actions (for a higher purpose). Thinking about alterity through and within the infinite possibilities of the fictional world(s) speaks about the importance that fiction has in our lives on a global scale.Reading it feels like a breath of magical realism and sci-fi, which can proudly stand together with Terry Pratchett, Jose Luis Borges and many others.
