Graphic design for »Vinden som sprider elden«, by the Argentine author Selva Almada, Bokförlaget Tranan. An engine failure leaves the itinerant pastor Pearson and his teenage daughter Leni standing in the blazing sun on a deserted country road in northern Argentina. They are picked up and dropped off at the local car mechanic, called Gringon, and his innocent son Tapioca. In Tapioca the pastor sees a pure, unspoiled soul for the first time. Leni sees a peer, motherless and isolated as she. As in an intimate spectacle the four people’s lives and sorrows are played off against each other, until the weather turns and a discharge is inevitable.
