Here is the very first review of the Manolo's The Consolation of the Shoes.

"Riffing on Christian philosopher Boethius' 6th-century work, the Consolation of Philosophy, Manolo's writing integrates medieval-style text about longing for inner happiness with a fashionisto's 21st century crisis of faith to create a social statement of footwear equality. Manolo's erudition leads the reader on a humor-filled treasure hunt through oblique pop-culture references, quotes from Paradise Lost, the annals of European art history, and world culture."
