Nocturnal Tango or Novel of One Summer at the End of the Century consists of three versions of one story about infidelity. In each of the three parts, the characters change and swap roles with the exception of the central one – the beautiful fairy-tale Rapunzel, who remains, unlike in the fairy tale, unfaithful. As we know from Kratochvil’s other works, the plot is interlaced with unexpected twists and pleasurable episodes, magical characters , and exotic settings. The three stories are drawn together in the final (fourth) part of the book.
