Because we all need a little spark of magic for the beginning of the week.
Today, let me introduce you to Michal Ajvaz's novel 'The Luxembourg Gardens' and walk you through the author's world of magic realism.
The story follows a series of events experienced by Parisian teacher Paul during the summer holidays. One morning, while procrastinating instead of working, he hits the wrong key on his computer keyboard and misspells a word.
In his browser he gets only one search result for the unknown word Okitubis and instead of shutting it down and returning to his daily routine, Paul clicks on it and decides to explore the crazy and surreal story which unfolds in front of him which results in the best and the worst moments of his life.
