A portrait of the "working man" in the best traditions of Latvian realist writing with the tense rhythem of modern narrative and fine portraits of our contemporaries" ( Publisher) Although not quite openly a dissident, Lams wrote with an integrity which often was not acceptable to the Soviet literary establishment, yet on the other hand, envied by them. Lam's literary attitude resulted in major delays in the publication of his best work. This book appears to have been translated from a Russian translation of the Latvian original.
