Product Overview

This trilogy of novels was the culmination of Karel Capek''s career. The novels share neither characters nor events; instead, they approach the problem of knowing people--of mutual understanding--in a variety of ways. Detectives faced with a murder reconstruct the crime, but not the character of the man who was murdered. Three people tell stories about a dying pilot they know almost nothing about; each story is as full of truth as it is devoid of facts. And one man looks back on his life and discovers all the people he might have been. Together, these three short novels form a readable philosophical novel unique in world literature.
