Synopses & Reviews
The first English-language collection of stories and novel excerpts by the best and most representative younger Czech writers, this volume reveals that, unlike the older generation, these writers have not been disillusioned; their darkness comes not from the disappointment of hopes, but from never having had any. This collection also introduces a new generation of American Czech-into-English translators and contains a few bonus selections from excellent members of the older generation who somehow were passed over.
“Short stories and novel excerpts from the best of the young writers.” —Booklist
