Description  more details

"Hlasko's story comes off the page at you like a pit bull."—The Washington Post

“His writing is taut and psychologically nuanced like that of the great dime-store novelist Georges Simenon, his novelistic world as profane as Isaac Babel's.”—Wall Street Journal

"Spokesman for those who were angry and beat . . . turbulent, temperamental, and tortured."—The New York Times

"A must-read . . . piercing and compelling."—Kirkus Reviews

"A self-taught writer with an uncanny gift for narrative and dialogue."—Roman Polanski

“Marek Hlasko … lived through what he wrote and died of an overdose of solitude and not enough love.”— Jerzy Kosinski, author of The Painted Bird and Being There

"A glittering black comedy ... that is equally entertaining and wrenching."
Publishers Weekly

"The idol of Poland's young generation in 1956."
— Czeslaw Milosz, 1980 Nobel Prize in Literature

New Vessel Press 2014, 138 pages (soft cover)
