Magnificent! Such a short pure story with a powerful impact that causes an emotional choke in the throat. I adore this book! Presented in the graphic novel format with simple, unpretentious illustrations this is an adult picture book about a man who gave up on his dream to become a sculptor and instead has spent his life as a mailman. Infused with a small dose of magical realism he walks into a Lost Property office to find it filled with all the misplaced, lost, broken and donated items of his past, even including the clerk, a former classmate. This head-on collision with his past brings his life full circle and he draws his former dreams into his current life. Beautiful, touching story that may have you thinking about your own life dreams that you let escape for the more practical aspects of life. Is it too late to realize them yet?
