About this book
A strange, haunting and poetic novel, which bears comparison with the works of Kundera and Sebald.
Talks about giraffes from the moment of their capture in Africa to their deaths behind the Iron Curtain. This book presents a story about strangeness, about creatures that are alien. It is also about captivity, about Czechoslovakia, a middling totalitarian state in the middle of Europe, a nation of sleepwalkers.
