Telegram / Telegram

KK Bagala



Stanislav Rakús’ prose collection Telegram / The Telegram, aimed at the second half of 20th century, has a humoristic, grotesque and tragicomic character. The parodying literary motives and contemporary totalitarian mechanisms play an important role in the book. They do not become the transparent shape in the form of a prose, but at the same time, more or less openly, they interfere with different spheres of deformity, but also with humanly saturated and interesting lifestyles.
