Marta Dziurosz reviews The Equestrienne by Slovak writer Uršul’a Kovalyk for the European Literature Network:

'This little book – it is only 80 pages long – packs a punch beyond its size [...] Karolína’s life, as she says at the very end, peaked at a time you’re not supposed to have anything good to say about, yet Kovalyk does not glorify the simpler times of communism. Her riotous, funny and painful parable is of a country and a girl in the throes of a revolution, of order turned upside-down.'
