Would you bet your entire lifetime on a single number?
They say youth is wasted on the young. But it’s not until the young reach old age that they realize just how painfully true that statement is. And sometimes, old age comes far too quickly.
Traveling in the Russian countryside on a trip home after many years abroad, a young expatriate finds himself lost one night in a small town. He stumbles into an underground casino, and his life changes forever—overnight. But it’s not the kind of “golden jackpot” story you might expect… or ever hope for yourself.
Compared by some readers to the chilling narratives of fellow Czech-born Franz Kafka, “Bakaly” reads unforgiving and raw, just like the hard, cutting vodka its two main characters drink during the fateful game of roulette they play on that dark, dark night.
