"Main characters in the collection of short stories written by the Czech author Lubomír Mikisek are quite ordinary people like us. With turbulent sensitivity and often with scars on their souls, they wish to step out of their stereotypes and find someone who would understand and love them. Desire usually remains hidden but can erupt from time to time. Then, a wish emerges too. Main characters often make decisions whether to realize these desires and wishes, maybe by making only an undaring move forward or waiting for a coincidence that could bring them happiness, and then even a miniscule episode suddenly turns into a deep internal drama. Sometimes, disappointment arrives; at other times, a journey of new hope opens. Those who lend a helping hand before asked, are not absent from the stories either.
The deeply psychological fiction is written in a readable and gripping style, providing exact descriptions and a poetic touch, and surprises with an unexpected punchline or an open end. As if the author was telling the reader - it can happen to you too. Under the cover of the seemingly everyday reality, it is possible to extent a hand out, let a rose blossom although it sometimes has thorns.
The author’s fiction is thought-provoking, makes us sympathize with others and often soothes unexpectedly too. It is definitely nothing minor in the contemporary, presumably heartless and fast-moving world."
