About this item
A small family moves out to the Slovenian countryside, planning to restore a large, dilapidated farmhouse. Then the relatives arrive. There’s Cousin Vladimir, a former partisan writing his memoirs, Uncle Vinko, an accountant who would like to raise the largest head of cabbage for the Guinness Book of Records, Aunt Mara, and her illegitimate daughter Elisabeth who’s bent on losing her virginity. And finally Uncle Schweik, the accidental hero of the war of liberation who everyone assumed was dead. Flisar handles the absurd events that follow like no other writer, making the smallest incidents rich in meaning.
