Alena Mornštajnová is back – again with something different, and again with something brilliant!
Kid, as she is known, seems to have arrived in this world by some kind of oversight, for there is nothing for her here. Her father went off during the floods and her mother has abdicated parental responsibilities in favour of lovers and alcohol, leaving Kid with a spiteful grandmother who believes that life’s bad things are either exterminable, like the slugs at the garden centre she runs, or not to be spoken of. But all around them are woods in which danger lurks, and one day Kid does start to speak of it…
Alena Mornštajnová has written a captivating drama about how nothing in life is as it seems at first, and that no secret is buried so deep that it cannot be excavated. The secret here may scare you, but you will not stop reading till it is out.
