Total Fears by Bohumil Hrabal

Book Description

In these letters written to April Gifford (Dubenka) between 1989 and 1991 but never sent, Bohumil Hrabal (1914-1997) chronicles the momentous events of those years as seen, more often than not, from the windows of his favorite pubs. In his palavering, stream-of-conscious style that has marked him as one of the major writers and innovators of postwar European literature, Hrabal gives a humorous and at times moving account of life in Prague under Nazi occupation, Communism, and the brief euphoria following the revolution of 1989 when anything seemed possible, even pink tanks. Interspersed are fragmented memories of trips taken to Britain as he attempted to track down every location mentioned in Eliot s The Waste Land and the United States, where he ends up in one of Dylan Thomas s haunts comparing the waitresses to ones he knew in Prague. The result is a masterful blend of personal history and fee association rendered in a prose as powerful as it is poetic.."

Mr Kafka by Bohumil Hrabal Mr Kafka, Paperback (March 2016)

Mr Kafka is avoiding his landlady's blueberry wine breath, a stonemason witnesses the destruction of a monument to Stalin, and factory men strain to catch a glimpse of a beautiful bathing murderess. This title tells stories that capture men and women in an eerily beautiful nightmare and their spirit in all its misery and splendour.

Mr. Kafka by Bohumil Hrabal Mr. Kafka, Paperback (November 2015)

Wonderful stories of Communist Prague by "the masterly Bohumil Hrabal" (The New Yorker)
