About the Book

This is a collection of short stories about historical figures from different periods whose lives have somehow influenced our own lives and times. The book contains pieces about the following characters: Isaac Newton, Adolf Hitler, Vincent van Gogh, Bobby Fisher, Rafael Trujillo, Friedrich Nietzsche, Ernest Hemingway, Sigmund Freud, Nikola Tesla, Yukio Mishima, John F. Kennedy, The Unknown Soldier, Charles Darwin, Galileo Galilei, Franz Kafka, Carl Gustav Jung and Leonardo da Vinci. Even though the stories are rooted in reality, they contain fictional elements based on legends and speculations surrounding each of the characters. This work is the result of several years of research into their lives and works. In addition, there is a Voice in all the stories that has its own personality and sets the rhythm of the plot and the tone of the collection as a whole.
