Hrabal, one of the great Czech writers of the twentieth century, as well as an inveterate haunter of Pragueâs pubs and football stadiums, developed a unique method which he termed âpalavering,â whereby characters gab and soliloquize with abandon. Part drunken boast, part soul-rending confession, part metaphysical poem on the nature of love and time, this astonishing novel (which unfolds in a single monumental sentence) shows why he has earned the admiration of such writers as Milan Kundera, John Banville, and Louise Erdrich.
About: Rake, drunkard, aesthete, gossip, raconteur extraordinaire: the narrator of Bohumil Hrabalâs rambling, rambunctious masterpiece Dancing Lessons for the Advanced in Age is all these and more.
