Philip Latinowicz is a successful but disillusioned painter who returns to his hometown after an absence of twenty-three years. He hopes that revisiting his roots will inspire him to create the perfect work of art and thereby restore his faith in both art and life. Haunted by his troubled childhood, however, he falls in with shady characters and discovers the emotional, intellectual, and imaginative poverty of his own background.

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.
