“A Soundless Ring” is a penetrating and in parallel intimate look into the mundane human existence. This is the writer’s sixteenth book. It is made up of essayist narratives and texts based on the author’s personal experience.
Navakas does not write directly about the common human values however each essay reveals the fragility of human being and temporality of the world. The author playfully revives, as if from the fragments of inlay, his memories of living in Kaunas in the Soviet period, bohemia, and travels.
The essayist texts of Kęstutis Navakas, compared to other authors of the same genre, is noticeable due to their flowing and elegant style, intellectual humour, wide context of social and cultural life, subtle details, and unexpected turns. The book is translated into the German language.
