Feast of Fools by Henryk Skwarczyński

Henryk Skwarczyński is absolutely sui generis. Everyone knows that he goes where no one else goes and sees what others don’t see. He’s a voyager, and forever displaced. His books are neither central nor marginal. When political, they are political in an unpolitical way. Feast of Fools is typical. It lies somewhere between Rabelais and Jarry’s Ubu, and every episode in the book reflects a miraculous conjunction between the Ordinary and the Unbelievable—besides being very droll and affecting. Also excessive, and straining belief: which in literature is a very good thing. In a word, a feast. (Keith Botsford)
