A grand novel about the trials and tribulations of a middle-aged man who in a flush of anger stabs a guard in a shopping mall, who against his will makes career at a glossy magazine, who makes trips on his bike to a friend to eat hallucinating mushrooms, who likes to watch movies, who has to go to Lisbon on behalf of his work, wanders of into the country, meets a Hungarian girl with whom he has an affair, and who in the end returns to Prague. This novel, written in an outstanding way, is a search for the meaning of life and Hakl has succeeded to give an original picture of our modern time. Due to this novel Hakl got wide appraisal from his fellow writers and is considered to be one of the most underestimated Czech contemporary authors.
