The most intelligent of women is attracted to the greatest of crooks. She knows that it is a self-consuming passion, yet ... A happily married woman is suddenly sickened by life. She knows there is no objective reason to feel so, yet ... Over time all wounds from a marriage entered into out of compromise have healed, yet ... . In real time entertainment the stories of all three “yet-s” develop in front of our eyes as dramatisation of our lives. Timrava is a phenomenon. Whereas other writers of her era failed to overcome the limitations of light-hearted feuilletons, Timrava offers in incisive view into the complex human interior. Her diverse world mixes the grotesque with the quaint; deepest despair develops against the backdrop of a peaceful idyll; beastliness suddenly takes hold of those who were most spiritual, and those most beastly are suddenly lit by a ray of humanity.
