"This fine collection of short stories gives an example of experienced writing and deep feeling of the situation of mankind. The themes and styles oscillate between fantastic horror, kafkaesque absurdity, surrealism or even a tragic love story. It is a journey over half of our world: from the communist Czechoslovakia over to Russia and eventually North America, both USA and Canada. The author's language and approach succeeds in narrating even the bleak events with irony and humour."
-- Jiří Boreš
"If you're starved for exciting, gripping and thought-provoking short stories, Jiří Klobouk serves up 'manna from heaven', in this Third Wife. Fascinating characters, powerful endings. He can really tell a story. A great read!"
