Product Description

Review

"This virile sentimentality is quite exceptional in contemporary art and is ultimately the real core of Hakl's writing, though at first glance it might seem that this core has been fragmented into anecdotes." -- Jiri Penas, Tyden

"To my mind, Emil Hakl is one of the more interesting Czech writers today." -- Jan Culik, Britska listy

About the Author

Emil Hakl was born in Prague in 1958. A graduate of the Jaroslav Jezek Conservatorium, he worked at a number of manual-labor jobs under the communist regime. From 1996 to 2000 he worked as a copywriter for an advertising agency, after which he devoted himself to literature, publishing a volume of poetry, three novels, and two collections of short stories since, as well as regularly contributing reviews and essays to all the main literary publications. Hakl's work has started to appear in anthologies and magazines in English, German, and French, including Decapolis: Tales from 10 Cities.

Czech Jan. 30 2011
By Jonathan A. Weiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very interesting dialogue between a father and son as they meander through Prague and memories mainly political, aeronautical, and personal. Witty, insightful, poignant, its appeal still may be mainly to those who cherich Middle European litereature and, in particular, Czech humor. An easy read for a long plane ride.
