The fictional stories take place in various locations, Asia, Switzerland, etc, and during different times from the 17’th century to our own days.

Tokarczuk, in her unique skill, offers them to the reader to enhance her surprise and marvel at our complex world. Which is pieced together from the mundane, but also the bizarre.
