  • Extraordinary . . . Mrozek's brief fables are something like Kafka's stories, but they're funnier

  • The satiric intent is unambiguous, and offers hope to the oppressed deft and so piercing

    Nicholas Lezard, Guardian
  • [The series] sheds remarkable light on the literature, culture and politics of the region...anyone coming fresh to the field will be captivated by the richness, variety, humour and pathos of a classic literature that, through a shared historical experience, transcends national and linguistic boundaries.

    CJ Schüler, Independent on Sunday
  • This [series] is a wonderful idea ... They are absurdist parables, by turns hilarious, unsettling and enigmatic.

    Nicholas Lezard, Guardian
  • I urge you to go and read them.

    Adam Thirlwell, New Statesman
  • This new series of Central European Classics is important well beyond simply providing 'good reads'.
