The novel “Material Fatigue” is on a very actual topic – migration and describes the way to Europe of two brothers from an unnamed war-torn country. Their roads are suddenly separated and everyone goes on their own, without a map, without connections, without contacts. We are following the complex and painful road to the north, and at the same time we are reading in the book about Europe seen from the outside. Europe, which reminds us of a great machine that works. The only thing standing against that machine is the vulnerable human body. The body of an elderly person is reduced to a problem, to statistical data, to material.
