On Wing

Róbert Gál
Translated by Mark Kanak

A great Slovak philosopher-poet Róbert Gál’s work of fiction, On Wing is atomized into hundreds of tiny aphorisms, dreams, anecdotes, and inquiries.

“The Czech Cioran …” —Andrei Codrescu

“Gál’s aphorisms combine incisive question-raising and gently troubling images involving Time, God … and existential self-awareness.” —The Antioch Review

“Gál is a phenomenon unto himself: a purveyor of neurotic philosophy encapsulated in elliptical portents and epifragmentals, the content of which is at all odds with their length.” —Joshua Cohen
