In her second novel, My Most Beloved Book, Markéta Pilátová draws upon her experience of South America, telling the story of the Snake Institute and its boss – an exceptionally suspenseful story of an almost magical sort where fabulous motifs meet with sometimes unsavourably realistic descriptions of South American reality – including its drug mafia and the severe poverty and dangerousness of its slums. The author takes her reader through the many layers of the faraway world of her story on the other hemisphere – another plotline features the story of an ill-educated indian girl endowed with instincts beyond scholarly understanding. She also shows how deeply and painfully the talons of the ugly parts of European history can cut into unprepared souls. The various threads of the main storylines become increasingly entangled until they form a multi-colour, magical and extremely captivating carpet of dreams and reality.
