THE MAN WHO GOT STUCK WITH A SCOWL

Uri Katz

Keter, 2021

 

Cutting across borders of history and genre, THE MAN WHO GOT STUCK WITH A SCOWL is an astounding novel about the search for a lost novella by the elusive Pavel Klemczek, a legendary Czech modernist said to have influenced Franz Kafka. The protagonist Uri Katz follows Klemczek’s trail past the edge of heartbreak and madness, where contemporary national narratives and technological malaise are embodied in a scowl that won’t go away.
