The book of aphorisms and epigrams from a creation of the known slovak author, which uncompromisingly presents a satirical mirror not only for readers. A pert, sometimes a cynical, but honest insights, basic ideas, cues with a low dose of black humour, all of those, were sensitively lived through.

Grigorij Starodubcev: The Proto-earth
The poems transcend privacy and the public images are many a time accompanied by a Kafkaesque motif of an unidentifiable pressure.
