I loved Kafka, but this is almost better in a lot of regards. Each story works on its own, but taken together each morsel adds up to a sumptuous meal. To think - I've been in Poland all these years, yet this is the first time I've been exposed to Mrozek. That doesn't put me in a very good light, but at least now my oversight has been somewhat rectified. ( )
