The unloved wife of a doctor practising in Slovakia comes across his medical notes after his death. One `unofficial patient' has severe problems coming to terms with the disappearance and murder of his childhood sweetheart. Set in Slovakia from the mid-1970s onwards, historical fact, murder, loss and mourning combine delicately in a tale of love, loss, redemption and joy.

Review quote

"The translation by David Short is brilliant, and Gaudeamus contains strong moments when the borders between fantasy and the real blur or crumble, opening up to more searching, deeper prose." -- Rain Taxi "Rain Taxi"
