Editorial Reviews


'This English translation took almost a quarter of a century to complete, but it was worth waiting for. The immersive poetic quality and complex polyphonic structure of the original have been painstakingly preserved.' - Andrei Rogatchevski, The Times Literary Supplement; 'A Kingdom of Souls is a dark and elusive novel, but it is also seductive. Hodrova's precise expression (in this fine translation) and unexpected perspectives make for an impressively disturbing, compelling text.' - M.A.Orthofer, The Complete Review; '[...] the entire city of Prague and its genius loci is, in fact, the central character, not just in The City of Torment trilogy but in all of Hodrova's fiction. It is hoped that English speaking readers will soon get the chance to read the other two books in the remarkable trilogy" - Julia Sherwood, Visegrad Insight; 'This is an extraordinary book - erudite, moving and poetical.' - Zoe Brooks,; 'A Kingdom of Souls (1991, translated 2015 - significantly by two excellent female translators[...]), is a beautiful portrait of [Hodrova's] city - memories, histories, haunting images.' - Heather Reyes, Stories from the City; An excerpt from A Kingdom of Souls won the 1992 Virginia Faulkner Award for Excellence in Writing; Daniela Hodrova won the 2012 Franz Kafka Prize and the 2011 Czech State Award for Literature.
