Original title: Koho vypijou lišky
Débutante Lidmila Kábrtová has come up with an original work of prose in which every word counts. In order to say everything important, are fifty words a lot or a little?
Little El lives in 1970s Czechoslovakia. The violence in her parents’ relationship is a part of her childhood that marks but holds no surprises for her. Each chapter comprises fifty words exactly, is a self-contained story, and places another stone in the mosaic of the book as a whole.
