On Collecting Stamps

by Håkan Lindquist
£9.99   paperback  Bruno Gmunder Verlag GmbH (2012)

On Collecting Stamps by Håkan Lindquist A poetic tale about truth and longing.
 
A journey to the town where he was born becomes a trip into the past: When Mattias hears about the death of a friend from his childhood days, he starts recalling the time with Samuel. Mattias was searching for a friend, while Samuel was longing for his big love, a young sailor on the edge of manhood. Samuel’s funeral leads Mattias back to an unanswered question.
 
Why did he dedicate his life to a stamp collection instead of really living it? Finally an old letter of the passed away friend resolves a well kept secret ...
