Review: Brian McCabe
His novel Mercedes-Benz is addressed to the great Czech writer Bohumil Hrabal, and his first novel Who Was David Weiser? similarly references Gunter Grass. Both are in the nature of homages, using the vision of the other writers as a lens through which to view Polish history and culture. Similarly in these stories, we find deferential echoes of Chekhov and Borges.
