The Return of Philip Latinowicz based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
It is one of Krleza's best works. The book will take you on a wonderful journey with Philip and it will open your imagination... A great literary work!
Good moments but on the whole this novel is an example of an author who has lost his focus and failed to contain his minor characters. Krleza, in my opinion, cannot be said to approach Kafka and is easily out classed by Stephen King.
