Contents: Books and roses -- "Sorry" doesn't sweeten her tea -- Is your blood as red as this? -- Drownings -- Presence -- A brief history of The Homely Wench Society -- Dornička and the St. Martin's day goose -- Freddy Barrandov checks... in? -- if a book is locked there's probably a good reason for that don't you think.
Summary: The stories collected here are linked by more than the exquisitely winding prose of their creator. The reader is invited into a world of lost libraries and locked gardens, of marshlands where the drowned dead live, the Homely Wench Society commits a guerrilla book-swap, and lovers exchange books and roses on St Jordi's Day. It is a collection of towering imagination, marked by baroque beauty and a deep sensuousness.
"A collection of intertwined stories built around the idea of keys, literal and metaphorical"--
