Love And Garbage

Love And Garbage


240 Pages


The narrator of Ivan Kl-ma's novel has temporarily abandoned his work-in-progress - an essay on Kafka - and exchanged his writer's pen for the orange vest of a Prague road-sweeper. As he works, he meditates on Czechoslovakia, on Kafka, on life, on art and, obsessively, on his passionate and adulterous love affair with the sculptress Daria. Gradually he admits the impossibility of being at once an honest writer and an honest lover, and with that agonizing discovery comes a moment of choice.

"The dilapidated regime "Love and Garbage" depicts is now of course on history's rubbish dump. One of those who helped to put it there is this writer." - "Sunday Times"
