Víťo Staviarsky's book The Deal consists of three parts, interconnected by the setting of a fair. In the eponymous first part, the author shares his business-trips adventures while the novellas Marko's daughter and Loli Paradička are realistic probes into the lives of fair merchants. Bubble blowers and toy antlers are not the most important things for most people, however, for Staviarsky's protagonists, they are the center of their interest and their livelihood. Staviarsky's style is unique and easily identifiable, with short, racy sentences and the use of slang. His empathy for people living on the outskirts of society, his detailed knowledge of the Roma people and the precise fieldwork he conducts as we film maker allow him to write about small problems as if they were grand.
