Námestie kozmonautov / The Square of the Astronauts
KK Bagala

(2007)

 

A novel about the “invisible generation”, the people you meet every day in the street, or maybe even in your own mirror. The tragicomic couple of protagonists are in their forties and they belong to the GENERATION Ю. All their youth they were forced to write in Cyrillic alphabet and now everyone expects them to speak English. They have lost their ambitions, but not their dignity. That is why they go on living their grotesque lives as if Laurel and Hardy were trying to act in Hamlet. The novel The Square of the Astronauts won the first prize in the literary competition “ROMÁN 2006 Slovak Telekom”.
