    • Hrabal was a master of the short novel and no one could blend tenderness and cruelty in such a humorous way as him In this short novel we go back to the past always in an after Austro Hungarian Czech Republic and meet some well known characters from other novels such as Uncle Pepin and Francin Chapter 2 can be hard to digest for someone like me.

    • I think the opening chapter is one of my favourite pieces by Hrabel and the book has some fine moments Strange cruel moments too and maybe a bit laboured in places , but Hrabel is great in virtually everything he does.
