Ivan Klima has been acclaimed by The Boston Globe as "a literary gem who is too little appreciated in the West" and a "Czech master at the top of his game." Now Klima takes us into the heart of contemporary Prague, where the Communist People's Militia of the Stalinist era marches headlong into the drug culture of the present.

Kristyna is in her forties, the divorced mother of a rebellious fifteen-year-old daughter, Jana. She is beginning to love a man fifteen years her junior, but her joy is clouded by worry -- Jana has been cutting school, and perhaps using heroin. Meanwhile Kristyna's mother has forced on her a huge box of personal papers left by her dead father, a tyrant whose Stalinist ideals she despised.

From the Publisher:
The great Czech writer pens a new novel set in Prague and centered around Kristyna, a divorced mother trying to raise her rebellious teenage daughter Jana. Reprint.
Author Bio
Ivan Klima
Ivan Klima, a Prague native, attended Charles University and was editor of Literarni Noviny, the journal of the Czech Writer's Union. A concentration camp survivor (he was at Theresienstadt from ages 10 to 14), Klima lived briefly in the United States, where he was visiting professor at the University of Michigan in the late sixties, then returned to Prague with his wife, psychologist Helena Mala. Until the end of Soviet rule in 1990, Klima's work was banned in Czechoslovakia. His fiction is often about characters who come into conflict with the events of their time in history.
