“Flaubert said that since he was young he saw every person he met as a skeleton of a person. That is exactly what the novel “The Remaker of Dreams” is about. It is an impressive novel that combines miraculously between intellect and emotion. With sentimental bravery and intellectual integrity it encompasses life in its whole and gives the reader a great literary experience.”
