Ulga / The Relief
author: Natalia Fiedorczuk
Ulga (editor’s translation: Relief) is a classic novel. As the author said in an interview:
It’s about the hell of everyday life. The book shows its two facets. One of them is boredom and confrontation with our frustrations. They stem from the disparity between the visions we have for our lives and what they are actually like. The second facet is unexpected misfortune. When it happens to use, we ascribe different meanings to it. There’s a whole spectrum: from stereotypically treating misfortune as punishment for sins to strong, existential confrontations with it.
