This is one of my favorites. I see Guimard as the Inarritu of books. He explores all kind of apparently small happenings of life and braids them so the reader realises the true importance of small things, all people that you may not notice walking on by and the many things you may not experience because of a few minutes. The randomness of life. The importance of life. Makes you wonder about who or what you are missing when you're not paying attention. The hazard of time:11 minutes.
