Preč! Preč! / Off! Off!
Marenčin PT



Rosa, a woman of forty, grew up next to the train station and she´s always preferred trains to any other means of transport. One just has to start running and… jump in! Especially when January lasts 12 months. Running from her work and from her husband, she meets a man with deceivingly blue eyes, an owner of a puppet theatre who wishes to travel around the world with his play about the Snow Queen. All the roads suddenly lead to the north. South starts to be suspicious when you turn thirty. And what about the sea? There is none, but they don´t need it anyway.

Café Hyena is a traditional café in the centre of Bratislava where tourists mingle with regulars and lovers. The book is about the importance of accompanying and protecting the loved ones. Especially on their journeys through the labyrinths of Petržalka, given that the Minotaur has disappeared without a trace.
