Summaries and Reviews
Summary
An English-language translation of a novel written in the 1970s by the Czech author of 'Closely Observed Trains' and 'Too Loud a Solitude'. By turns sad and funny, it is set in a small provincial town in Bohemia between the wars, and reflects the passing of an age upon a community.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: From the flamboyant and unpredictable Maryska, who scandalises the town when she cuts short her golden tresses, to the eccentric Uncle Pepin, who always has to have a ready supply of furniture to smash when he's angry, Bohumil Hrabal creates a range of enchanting and memorable characters - confirming his status as one of Europe's greatest writers.
