Highly recommend it March 2 2015
By Stokrotka - Published on
Format: Paperback
Excellent. Poetry, reality and surrealism - everything together. When I read it I was bursting into laughter. Superb language. Saul Bellow and Phillip Roth came to my mind when I read it.
Short stories like no other Dec 21 2014

Pilch is one of the funniest writers living! This book restored my faith in the form of the short story.
