Slovakian author Zuzana Karasova presents Miscalculated Feelings, an original novel about desire, longing, and the depths of the human psyche. A 29-year-old British photographer travels from London to a mysterious city named after the legendary, vanished land of Atlantis. Wandering the halls of the Memory Museum, he stumbles across the wax model of a beautiful and wealthy woman. Captivated by the image, he is driven to find the woman that the model was based on, despite speculations that she died long ago. He searches relentlessly for her; the person he eventually discovers is aging and agoraphobic, yet holds him virtually spellbound. Allusions to art, religion, mythology, and the history of Slovakia's capital of Bratislava add a dynamic flair to this powerful and erudite modern-day fable. Highly recommended.
