A series of short-stories with Kafka-esque undertones. "I am, if I may make so bold, a successful writer. For 20 years now, I have been working - neglected or misunderstood by the critics and envied by anyone who cannot make a living from their own work - on a chronicle of our family history." This is the beginning of a brilliantly funny, bitingly satirical collection of short story by the writer and publisher Michael Kruger. Anybody who has anything to do with books or who just enjoys reading them, will find one character in this assortment they can identify with, sympathise with, laugh and cry with. There is, for example, the editor, who kills his ungrateful author. Or the uncle who is working on the definitive encyclopaedia of the typo. Or the beast, a gift from the publisher to his valued author, which - nurtured and cared by him - grows and grows and eventually crowds out everything and everybody else in the author's life.
