The Geese << Back
Dreaming and grumbling, Kosonen, the driver of tram no. 3, heads to work. He is horrified to think that he still has an entire day’s work ahead of him. What he can’t imagine is how the day will end.
«The goose doesn´t let him go. He keeps his neck up, staring at Kosonen, while his body comes and goes, describing the parabola of the windshield wiper».
From the beginning of this story, we will get inside the coat of its protagonist, a man with a strong personality for himself, that kind of people who are so introverted that they do not want to stop being so, so from the outside we could not distinguish it from any other. And we will have no choice but to get into his skin because the first pages are travelling in zoom in on Kosonen, a character who seems to be uncomfortable with everything outside his inner nest. That's how cinematographic this short story is and that's why the description of the city and the people who inhabit it, and who inevitably relate to this bad-tempered tram driver, are not at first glance kind, even if the Helsinki market is beautiful or the old passenger who speaks to him is adorable.
But something strange happens in normality, something that no one ever thought could happen. Suddenly surprise, fantasy and literature begin. And it is then that the magic of reading allows us to truly peep into Kosonen's inner world, and it is then that David Pintor's drawings become as indispensable as they are adorable and take on the capital importance that we have given them without being aware of it from the beginning of the story.
