Andanzas, vol. i, friends



"Andanzas, vol. i, friends" is a book containing a collection of four short stories on friendship, which tread the line between creative nonfiction, social criticism, and fictional prose. The word itself, Andanzas, is a Spanish word best translated as journey or adventure with a hint of fortune. Much like the title, the book is imaginative, vivid and full of child-bright perspectives, similar to some forms of Magical Realism.

"Julien Godman travels through his palace of memories - as life's moments flicker back like a 8mm film, he is brave enough to watch, and share them with us. - A stunning debut."  - Michelle Andonian

"It is a spare but wonderous work, evidence of a writer who understands the power of words, even - or especially - in brevity. Julien writes in calming, dream-like, sequences of everyday occurrences that pull you into his world, reminiscent of the works of Anais Nin. There is a mystical, Gibran quality to the work, and deep, startling twists. He writes with a kind of urban fancifulness, a sweet, street view of experiences in this city."  - Marsha Music
