The young Czech author’s debut discards the established clichés of Czech Prose. Elegantly and humorously, using an original novel form – a bildungsroman without morality and development – it projects the lives of intentionally schematic characters, symbols and victims of their cultures onto such diverse topics as suffering, tourism, Auschwitz and kindness, the end of history and make-up.
