Stay Tuned is a collection of eight short stories and novellas by the famous Czech writer and Jiří Orten Award winner. Loneliness of a couple, which doesn’t communicate but still speaks, emanates from the title novella named after the popular TV news catchphrase. Exquisitely written text about love, sex, disappointment and helplessness.

Praise

“The short stories from the book Stay Tuned repeat the single – or more precisely dual – motif of loneliness and a crisis of communication. Throughout the book these themes complement, offer a variation on or hold up a contrasting mirror to each other, and the texts also captivate the reader through the method of storytelling, the use of language. Šindelka places a great deal of importance on the rhythm with which the story unfolds.”

—Vojtěch Staněk, A2
