Rivers of Babylon

Pišťanek’s tour de force. The parking attendant Freddy Piggybank is now a porn-film tycoon who accidentally turns into a national hero of a Slovak uprising in Russia’s Arctic. Here Pišťanek progresses from black satire to prodigal and prophetic fantasy. Parts of the novel were written in Czech, and the author’s imagination transcends all boundaries. But the arch-mafioso Rácz manipulates all the action.
