Europe/ Central & Eastern Europe/Travel

Introduction by Vaclav Havel

Translated from Czech by George Theiner

These feuilletons became famous in the Prague underground before the Velvet Revolution. Issued monthly in hand-typed and clandestinely photocopied pages, these short essays show Vaculik's unique talent to fuse philosophy, honesty and humor into extraordinarily topical commentaries on everything from Gandhi to glasnost.

"There's nothing quite like it,...Vaculik is the night watchman at a temporarily shut-down enterprise whose product is the national soul." LOS ANGELES TIMES

"One of the most important Czech literary voices today" NEW YORK TIMES
