This magical debut novel is a love story. It is also a story of loss, magic, friendship, wonderful food, a brass band, an Italian witch, a large lawyer, an occasional dog and a car chase at a walking pace. Set in the little town of Dot in a forgotten part of the Baltic, it tells the life of Tibo Krovic, the good and honest mayor of Dot, and his love for his secretary, the beautiful, lonely -- and married -- Mrs. Agathe Stopak. In the quiet, respectable town there is nothing that Tibo can do about his love for Mrs. Stopak. Then one day, when she accidentally drops her lunch into a fountain, everything changes -- and their lives will never be the same. Read The Good Mayor and fall in love again.

A perceptive, outrageously true-to-life despite the absurdities that come up. Very funny in the little ways that a skim-reader may not pick up on.

Wonderfully imaginative, often brings forth laughter and tears on the same page, at times frightening in it's honesty, a savoured treat.
