A Book

by Christopher T. Dabrowski

Translated from Polish by Magda Woźniak

A book screamed to read it. A cover bound in high-quality leather.

I bought it, came back home. I opened.

The title page looked at me with promising whiteness.

I shuffled through and got my teeth into a content and the content got his milk-teeth into me.

The book had just three years. It had also beautiful bookmark with horsehair.

Intestine contents, stomach contents… To the lack of contents I couldn’t complain.

The title is “Alice”, only and until, good enough for me. It is written by a authors’ duet, she and he.

They both have the same surname. I think they are famous because they have recently been in TV.

They did a kind of “show”, something about lost daughter. This is probably a promotion of another book!
