Care of Wooden Floors, Paperback

Care of Wooden Floors Paperback



A bold and brilliant debut from a darkly funny new voice.

Oskar is a minimalist composer best known for his piece 'Variations on Tram Timetables'.

He lives with his wife and two cats in an unnamed Eastern European city.

But this book isn't really about Oskar. Oskar is in Los Angeles, having his marriage dismantled by lawyers.

Meanwhile, he has entrusted an old friend to take care of his perfect, beautiful apartment.

Despite Oskar leaving extensive notes on how to keep his flat in pristine condition, a tiny oversight initiates a chain of farcical, and even fatal, disasters. 'Care of Wooden Floors' is about loneliness, friendship and the quest for, and struggle against, perfection. And it is, a little, about how to take care of wooden floors.
