Ivan Klíma has returned to his favorite literary form – the short story, which he considers the most difficult form to master. Klíma also emphasizes the need to keep stories short, which can be difficult in today’s world where everyone has an abundance of words at their fingertips and communication has been hollowed out. The collection comprises stories mostly written over the last two years, including Klíma’s venture into the territory of short short stories that can be as short as a few sentences, while evoking the spectrum of emotions from love to horror.
