… “Paper disco balls” are certainly engaging in prose, which – in addition to mixing fiction and faction – thematizes the position of different, gender and sexual identities – urges the way out of fiction, on a courageous civic action in terms of treatment and other “humiliated and offended” social groups and layers. Finally, this short novel is not a love story, but it is a novel about love, or rather about a desire and a giving up of love, about its real impossibility and the Prust’s ability to literally evoke the love left in the past.
