The novella Seeing People Off, published in 2008 by Koloman Kertész Bagala as Plán odprevádzania / Café Hyena, follows Elza and Ian, a young couple living in a huge apartment complex outside of Bratislava, where the walls play music and talk and time is immaterial. Drawing on memories, everyday interactions, observations of post-socialist realities, and Elza’s attraction to actor, Kalisto Tanzi, Seeing People Off is a kaleidoscopic, poetic, and deeply funny portrait of a relationship.
