Original title: Goldstein píše dceři
Melantrich 1997, Druhé město 2006
Spanish (Luzam, Mexico, 2014)
A book of subtle epistles sent from Israel by an ageing film director, the emigrant Goldstein, to his daughter in Prague. The letters gradually shed light on the course of Goldstein´s life as well as the inconsistencies in his relationship with his daughter. This relationship has been established far too late; the reader compares his idealized imaginations with the reality of their actual and often conflicting encounters. This tragicomic story of love and self-love takes place in the recent past –in the 1980’s and 1990’s.
"This slim book is a surprisingly mature and intellectually inspiring psychological study."
