Just as one may view an abstract painting, this book is a word abstract of history of a beautiful city. Germain takes her readers on a tour of the city, but it is more than a tour of place but a tour of class, status and the sorrow of the people. Each location is representative of a class of person and the suffering which they have endured.
As one born in Prague, it resinated in a very personal way. Germain gives the opportunity for all to experience Prague in a special way.
A wonderful book of prose, and reflection. A must read for those who wish to explore life.
