Review quote

'Few writers more delightfully fulfil the internationally ordained mission of the Central European writer to tell stories that lay bare the bittersweet mysteries of human existence with empathy, erudition and a certain swagger than Pavel Vilikovský. How wonderful that, with the publication of this translation, English-speaking readers may too be charmed, tickled and moved by the games he plays!' Rajendra Chitnis, University of Bristol

About Pavel Vilikovsky

One of the most important Eastern European writers of the post-Communist era, Pavel Vilikovský began his career in 1965, but the political content of his writing and its straightforward treatment of such taboo topics as bisexuality kept him from publishing the works collected here until after the Velvet Revolution. In 1997 he won the Vilenica Award for Central European literature. Julia Sherwood is a freelance translator, mainly for salon.eu.sk. She lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
