From Publishers Weekly
Written in the form of a letter to Bohumil Hrabal, Huelle's autobiographical novel (complete with personal photographs) is also an homage to the late Czech writer. With long, expressive and visual sentences characteristic of his predecessor's work, Huelle tells the stories of three generations in Poland, from its pre-war independence through the communist years to the uncertain period of Huelle's youth at the turn of the century.

"'Pawel Huelle is one of the most well known Polish writers. In this new book his writing is at least as well oiled as a Mercedes-Benz 170 ought to be, full of stories and reads like a song' TAZ; 'Strictly enclosed by cars and roads, this city-road-movie explores the history of a whole family and era. Wonderful. As Brecht said, the simplest things are the most difficult to create' Bookmarket; 'Highly recommended. It's truly wonderful what this writer from Gdansk has managed to fit into such a tiny car' Focus"See all Product Description
