About this product
- DescriptionA prostitute wakes up one morning to discover that her boyfriend has tattooed obscene messages all over her body; a woman hesitantly goes back to her new boyfriend s flat, only to find it packed with toy soldiers and intricately reconstructed war scenes; a retired pilot flaunts his wealth by keeping pets in the lap of luxury. Whether evading the expectations of adult life or finding themselves drawn to peopleby whom they re simultaneously repulsed, the characters in this compilation hold a mirror up to the peculiar failings of masculinity. But as they carouse, argue, philosophize, and binge their way through the streets of Prague, they also offer the reader stark moments of insight and pathos.
