Author's prosaic debut Give the Elevator to Sisyphus! brings the inexorably realistic stories of various characters – from homeless man through soldier in love or peculiar opera lover to the drug addict model. World in which the heroes of short stories are living does not always look kind and happy. Author does not sermonize; he rather states the merciless facts in a dry manner. References to the everyday life are evident, fitting and appropriate – it is not possible to escape the reality or to keep out of it. Experienced narrator tells the real catchy short stories, mature in style. He lets his characters walk by their own ways, often to the end with a tragic form. Although majority of people would rather avoid the depicted situations, these stories can drag into their nets anyone.
