When I Talk To You, is all about seeking a spiritual connection between yourself and the world around you by careful introspection of the things that mean the most to you.
Michael Leunig as always offers fresh insights in the souls of humankind and the world that we live in. His carefully thought out allegories and the tools of his trade being cartoons that often feature a duck and teapot, make the whole process feel somewhat light and fresh.
It becomes something more like a gateway to an inner religion, a religion of self if you will and the guidance within sets the path for everyday people in times of despair or sadness to set their minds free again and enjoy what has all to often been lost to them.
As a take on all the problems the world faces with religious upheavals in the current day, Leunig offers a peaceful and alternative solution to recognizing what it is we need to have a fulfilling life. It offers a retreat for the mind and soul.
The book was originally published by Andrews McMeel Publishing in 2006 and this new publication by Harper and Collins offers an all new introduction by the master cartoonist himself along with remastered illustrations.
A delightful addition for any book collection and truly a thinking persons guidebook to life’s inner peace.
