" The worrying dreams of inspector Djin " - "Niespokojne sny inspektora Dzina" - , first book published by Monika DEL RIO, is a political satire presenting the reality of life in Poland during the years 1970-1990, shown from the point of view of a dog.

General disorder, stagnation, affairs are the main topics of this book. The gallery of characters reminds well known people from the political scene, sometimes painted with a caricatural pen.

The aim of the author was to memorise, in a satirical way, the real moments of every day life and to stress that, as time goes on, theses slices of life, even the most painful, can look comical.
