KRISZTINA TÓTH: Barcode

Short stories

toth_krisztina_vonalkodThis is the first work in prose from a remarkable poet. It contains fifteen short stories, each having a subtitle containing the expression line/bar. The narrator of the stories is either a young girl or a young woman, depending on the reader’s interpretation of each story, and some may see her as the same person all the way through. However, every action is seen from a woman’s point of view: childhood acquaintances, school camps, love, children, deceit, and journeys set against the backdrop of the ’socialist’ era towards its close.
