Keynote
A highly popular and multiple – award winning poet in top form – a mock comic epic that offers a sharp diagnosis of the state of our world.

Selling Points
 An original idea – a contemporary, grotesque form of the Odyssey.
 An outstanding play on the epic hero convention to describe the social and human condition of highly unheroic times.
 An original tale of contemporary Poland, with its dark and bright sides. A weave of
delight and condemnation.
 Sensual descriptions and disarming digressions, humour and nostalgia, all of it drenched in a bitter, distancing irony.
 A spectacular show of imagination – the plot seems to surge forward free of allboundaries.
 A remarkable and widely acknowledged poet, winner of many important awards,including the Kościelski Award.

Description
Three countries and two continents – Lewa Nielucki travels the world in pursuit of  his loved one. He begins in a small town
in Poland (probably Różycki’s home town of Opole), where the local politicians are comfortable settled in their corrupt and backwards world. Then a bizarre pilgrimage to Lourdes, concluding in the least expected manner. But this is not the end – there is still a literary competition and a trip to a hippy festival
to the USA. In this caricatured Odyssey nothing is impossible. Yet Różycki’s wild plot is also a pretext to wander off on elaborate digressions, full of bitter and ironic diagnoses of our world. A phenomenal show of poetic imagination and linguistic ability.

Target Market
Those who love contemporary poetry.
Readers of ambitious literature.
Those who love playful and experimental literature.
