Can't wait to check it out in June.
My kind of writer. I wonder why I never ran across any translations of him when I lived in Prague? Admittedly, the bookstore selections of Czech literature translated into English were rather limited, and I don't really read literary works in Czech as a rule. (Although whenever I open my bilingual edition of Macha's Maj I end up reading it aloud in Czech.)
I am reading a galley of the novel at the moment. It is, as you might expect, breathtaking.
