Halina Pawlowská

The writer published her 31st novel, this time she began writing on the luxurious island of Wangerooge in the North Sea. The subtitle is, "If you want to love nicely, you have to work on the love." The heroine is the same as in the bestseller Thanks for Every New Morning, yet it is not a sequel.

The title of the book is unconventional, yet it is substantiated for the author.

My mom loved figs, but I named the book this way because I created the story of a passionate night, during which it is not clear whether a relationship is love or not, with the same emotion as I did Thanks for Every New Morning" Pawlowská explained at the launch.

The book describes terribly embarrassing situations, reveals lust, and laughter appears even if sometimes it's all worth crying about... "If I wanted to cynically and briefly describe what the book is about, I could also say: About one night when HE snores awfully and SHE she cannot fall asleep," she added, explaining that she first wrote the book in her head and then transferred it to her computer. "I think about a book for a year, which is the most important time, I put it together in my head, and them I spend two months writing it on my computer," she described the way her luxurious stories emerge before they get to the bookshelves.

Milan Šteindler was not the godfather of the luxury book by chance

Pawlowská's books are always christened during the launch, so it was no wonder that such names as Dana Batulková, Petra Černocká, Markéta Hrubešová, Iva Hüttnerová, Jan Kanyza, Uršula Kluková, Zdeněk Troška, and Jitka Zelenková appeared at the event. The godfather of the book was Milan Šteindler, whom she chose deliberately. "The book is a contemporary story, but I recall the times when Milan and I prepared films together, when we had a lot of friends and when we had big plans," adds the writer.

Thanks for the Figs, published by Motto.
The recommended price for the book is 299 CZK
