About the Book
Otýlie Foldynová is already the epitome of strange and beautiful; a woman whose heart is divided between the mystic cosmopolitan life of Prague and the quaint bucolic days of Liškov. Yet during the hours of spirits, while finishing a shift at the local tavern, she meets someone from stranger tides; Mikuláš Vyví is back from the U.S. to his native village, and he brings with him unsettling times and a beating heart. Otýlie cannot ignore the magnetic presence, despite her sense of preservation and the eerie impression the man leaves with her close circle. She treads odd paths at erratic times and places with the unsettling man. But how long will her caution prevail?
About the Author
The Werths is a collective, operating under pen names. This helps us in the quest of consolidating our literary work separately and according to available means so that we can share them with a wider audience, while ensuring we keep our anonymous lives and free agency over being part of the world as it unfolds organically, and writing to our own rhythm.
The focus is therefore on the narratives, the characters and the tackled ideas. We don’t cater to personal narratives and marketing the people behind the artist and have no social media presence save for the official website of the Hurry to the Capsule Atelier.
We thank you for your interest, appreciate your readership and hope you found something in our texts.
