Ondrej Stefanik in B O D Y

“‘It seems like you’re an unhappy person. Isn’t that true? Learn to be happy in your unhappiness like Alyosha Karamazov,’ says the lunatic. Alyosha Karamazov? Shit, who’s that? His scar-faced accomplice from the Russian mafia?”

From Ondrej Štefánik’s short story “Man On A Toilet”, translated from the Slovak by Janet Livingstone. This is the second of Štefánik’s stories published in B O D Y’s Saturday European Fiction, the first being “To Sacrifice Yourself For Someone Else”, which was translated by Luba Spear-Piackova and Maria Modrovich. Both stories are from his collection Pštrosí muž (Ostrich Man).
