Experimental prose of Patrik Ouředník, whose story is set in contemporary Prague. On the ground plan of a fabrication pun with a detective plot he virtuosoly plays a varied range of stylistic and thought jokes, which serves him to sarcastically treat Czech today. The main characters of the book are Prague retirees, a detective and a raped student of fine arts. Although the book is based on humor, irony, and play with the reader, behind it all are ruthlessly portrayed images of life that Ouředník can find and capture as few people in contemporary Czech literature.
