Format: Paperback
Extraordinary dark stories from the post-communist Czechoslovakia / Czech Republic very well observed and told using imagery of the typical Czech behaviour and personalities. It sets perfectly the confused atmosphere of a nation after emerging from the 42 years of repression and finding itself suddenly in the democratic freedom without any advice or guidance for its peoples how to carry on with their lives in the new situation. The best are the look-ahead stories predicting the near future including the `Mayor Šulc's Astounding 2010 Directive' which won the British Czech and Slovak Association's 2006 writing competition. Highly recommended for all those who want to know more about the Czech Republic, her culture and her people.

Format: Paperback
Excellent collection of stories from not only Czech folks capturing their lives and mentality, but also those from all over the world who chose the Czech Republic as a place to live, sharing their experiences settling down in this society. The stories are written in a very captivating way, that draws you in and takes you on an emotional ride. Personally, I read this book cover to cover just in few hours. I laughed and giggled, I cried, I nodded my head in agreement, I sighed, I felt a little shame for some of the things people from my country of origin do and I learned a lot about it, too. It's a great way to learn about your society through the eyes of somebody else, as we tend to become blind to certain things that surround us our whole lives, so I can't but recommend this read to all Czech natives. But also I have to recommend this book to everyone who is interested in post-communist countries or thinks about living in the Czech Republic, as it will tell you a lot about Czech mentality and the reasons behind it, which may soothe your transition in this celebration and complaining loving society of people of the fastest developing post-communist country.
