In the Snow Globe
Stanley, a man of old Values, opposes everything about the modern world where the concept of Honor is foreign and anything can be justified. With his Angelic daughter, he dreams of a simple, contained life, like that of one in a Snow Globe. Instead, he is condemned to the many freedoms, forced to concede to the demands of modern society. Lost in his views and with the fates upon him, he emerges as a Martyr of sorts. Told in three parts, In the Snow Globe is a psychological novel, a postcard from the Eastern European district, Tysiąclecie, where truth intertwines indistinguishably with dreams.
Much like the great works of Dostoyevsky and Kafka, Damian Pasieka’s In the Snow Globe is one of those thrilling cerebral stories that leaves you on the cusp of confusion while keeping you utterly compelled. Every page takes you deeper into the troubled mind of the main character, Stan, while you, like him, are wondering what is real and what isn’t. It’s a book that you want to re-read as soon as you’ve finished it just to see what you might have missed the first time. — Jonathan R. Rose, author of Carrion, The Spirit of Laughter, Wedlock, and Gato y Lobo.
In the Snow Globe is a book that will leave scars on you. A short but relentless story of a single father struggling through life to provide for his daughter and protect her. His adversaries come in the form of vengeance, punishment, and madness which try to turn his mere essence into dust. But a man like him cannot be defeated easily. Damian Pasieka has built an everlasting monument to the power the love of a daughter can inspire in a father. — Mr. W., The Craziest Book Ever Written
