In her first “blog book” (Jaxi taksikařím, 2009), Iva Pekárková observed London from the steering wheel of a cab. This time, she slightly alters her perspective and borrows (or, as he says, steals) the eyes of her boyfriend K, an imperfectly Czechized Nigerian. The books is once again a humour-filled read although each story unfolds a “rougher” thinking matter forcing the reader to roar with laughter and often times with anger. Iva Pekárková assumed the life of the lower ranks of British society from which she has examined the mentality of non-English inhabitants of London and the co-existence of different ethnic groups for five years. Her writing is direct and brazen eschewing the “multicultural” empty talk and injected with a healthy dose of disrespect to every culture, including her own. Three short stories set in vibrant London complement the book.
