The story of an ageing pub brawler whose life is reduced to false mantras and empty rituals. An escalating plot, an engrossing narrative pace – and a finale that is, in its tragedy, actually funny.
National Avenue is an unrestrained, funny, brash, melancholic and brutal novel. […] Jaroslav Rudiš has written an excellent novel, which would also be perfect for a theatre adaptation.
—Lerke von Saalfeld
