(From the publisher):
Haňtá has been compacting trash for thirty-five years. Every evening he rescues books from the jaws of his hydraulic press, carries them home in a suitcase, and fills his house with them. There are two tons of books now on planks above his bed; Haňtá may be an idiot, as his boss calls him, but he is an idiot with a difference - the ablity to quote the Talmud, Hegel, and Lao-tzu.
