From the Publisher:
A novel of startling scope and ambition, Prague depicts an intentionally lost Lost Generation as it follows five American expats who come to Budapest in the early 1990s to seek their fortune. They harbor the vague suspicion that their counterparts in Prague have it better, but still they hope to find adventure, inspiration, a gold rush, or history in the making.Five American expatriates living in Budapest in the early 1990s seek to establish themselves and make their fortunes in a city still haunted by the tragedies of its Communist past.
Annotation:
A group of expatriates living in Budapest in 1990 would rather be in Prague, which seems to them to be the quintessential Eastern European city. Obsessed with a game called Sincerity, which both encourages and exposes lying, five characters interact with each other and with the city they're living in, providing a sharply observed picture of young expatriate life. A New York Times Notable Book for 2002.

Praise

New York Times
"[A]n ingenious debut novel....The book [tilts] toward its most easily satirized figures at the expense of its more admirable ones. But the beauty of PRAGUE lies in Mr. Phillips's empathy for their lapses. In the end he presents them with a wry generosity and haunting poignancy to rival his wonderfully subversive wit." - Janet Maslin 06/17/2002
