Rácz and Rivers of Babylon tell the story of a Central Europe, where criminals, intellectuals and ex-secret policemen have infiltrated a new ‘democracy’.

Slovaks see Peter Pištanek as their most flamboyant and fearless writer, stripping the nation of its myths and false self-esteem. The novel has been translated by Peter Petro of British Columbia University, in collaboration with the author .William Boyd (The Guardian): an astonishing find… fuelled with formidable energy and ice-cool satire.

It displays a fierce black humour that is both ruthless and exhilarating.Tibor Fischer (The Telegraph): the best fiction Ive read on the ‘wild west’ periodJohnny le Falbe (Literary Review): fast and very funny… translation is excellent
