The Lost Soul

Olga Tokarczuk

There was once a man who worked a lot, lived very fast and left his soul far behind. He slept, ate, worked, drove a car, and even played tennis ... But sometimes he felt that the world around him was too flat, as if he were moving on a smooth sheet of a notebook, a sheet of squared paper.

The first book by the nobelist Olga Tokarczuk, who speaks to the reader not only in words but also in pictures. Illustrator Joanna Concejo created a parallel story hidden in the paintings for her text. A picturebook was created - a book that develops a story in front of the reader in the form of captivating full-page illustrations. A deeply moving book about waiting, patience and mindfulness. An exceptionally beautiful book experience.
