Both pseudohistoric grotesque and serious analysis of historical events, philosophical and religious treatise and parody of ideological thinking, mixture of reality and surrealism, this novel plays with literary tradition and deconstructs narrative strategies. And that is only a part of what you can find in the Almanac dedicated to the „secret“ of Evangelical Cyclists... „Some books grow old with years, some are rejuvenated, some remain the same. But extremely rare are those that manage to force reality to change and adapt to what is written in them. Some twenty years ago The Cyclist Conspiracy seemed like postmodern brick-a-brack. Today, it is a historical record that becomes more and more true with every new day“, wrote David Albahari. Written in the age of degradation of the essential values, when the whole society was obsessed with the conspiracy theories, this novel is a pseudodocumentary collection of papers written by the members of the obscure society of the Cyclists of the Cross of Rose. A unique and distorted mirror in the Serbian literature, devastatingly witty, cynical and mercilessly ironic handbook of human folly.
