According to translator and essayist Laimantas Jonušys, the spare and precise use of language in Giedra Radvilavičiūtė's text transforms the everyday into extraordinary experiences. Seemingly meaningless elements that make up our existence are gathered and illuminated by a subtle unseen-before light; despair brought on by failure is caught with an eye for irony turning it into a literary victory. To use the author's own words: I offer to Shoot the Plot (the title of one of her previous essay collections), but the suppressed plot line takes on a uniquely personal life of it's own, making these texts, which skirt the border between diary-entry and short story, both original and impressive.
