Ogólna teoria jesieni [General theory of autumn]
by Tomasz Sobieraj
Twenty short stories balancing between realism, weird realism and dreamy atmosphere, known from Kafka and Schulz; amazing, poetic book, where beauty of darkness is mixed with the beauty of lightness; it's not a Kafka's plaint - it's a celebration, it's a lust, it's a mystery.
