Grzegorz Strumyk's novel shows the flip side of a reality which we do not want to face every day: he confronts us with the world of the outsiders of our society. Two tramps, a man and a woman, live in an abandoned warehouse. They are not only homeless in the social sense: their fate testifies to humankind's more profound loneliness. The author describes the heroes with great sensitivity, by uniting realism with a poetic vision. Strumyk writes of a homelessness which is one of the basic experiences of human existence.

"Without doubt one of the most subtle books to have been published recently." (Edyta Wnuk)
