Knife in the Mouth

Though these stories’ lonesome protagonists have probably all but lost hope, they are portrayed in seemingly mundane, yet all the more significant moments, which nonetheless offer an opportunity for change.

No. of pages: 192

Though these stories’ lonesome protagonists have probably all but lost hope, they are portrayed in seemingly mundane, yet all the more significant moments, which nonetheless offer an opportunity for change. With just a few masterful strokes – and a lot of humor – the author manages to introduce the characters’ backgrounds, once more proving that good literature reveals what we’ve always known, yet never before realized.

How will the seemingly perfect family deal with the daughter’s leftist boyfriend? How will a seemingly cosmopolitan woman react to a Syrian tenant or a chauvinistic farmer? Seen from a distance, even the most tragic circumstances – like being served an egg with no yolk – lose their gravity and become a series of life’s bizarre jokes.
