The author’s second work of prose is again a story somewhat absurd in the darkness of the world it depicts, a collection of curios in which the story of Gita Lauschmanová is unfolded on two time scales (1945 and 2005). The girl Gita leaves the concentration camp to the realisation that in fact there is nowhere for her to return to, and that the oppression and savagery are far from over; the elderly Gita Lauschmanová wishes to exact justice as her life draws to its close.
