A British copywriter stays for a week at his composer friend Oskar s elegant, ultramodern apartment in a glum Eastern European city. The instructions are simple: feed the cats, don t touch the piano, and make sure nothing harms the priceless wooden floors. Content for the first time in ages, he accidentally spills some wine. Over the course of a week, both the apartment and the narrator s sanity fall apart in this original and weirdly addictive (Daily Mail) novel. As the situation in and out of the sleek apartment spirals out of control, more of Oskar s notes appear, taking on an insistent even sinister tone. Care of Wooden Floors is a must-listen for anyone who s ever bungled a housesitting gig, or felt inferior to a perfectionist friend that is to say, all of us."
