This trilogy of novels was the culmination of Karel Capek''s career. The novels share neither characters nor events; instead, they approach the problem of knowing people--of mutual understanding--in a variety of ways. Detectives faced with a murder reconstruct the crime, but not the character of the man who was murdered. Three people tell stories about a dying pilot they know almost nothing about; each story is as full of truth as it is devoid of facts. And one man looks back on his life and discovers all the people he might have been. Together, these three short novels form a readable philosophical novel unique in world literature.
From the Publisher:
These novels together form the culmination of Czechoslovakia's greatest writer's career.Detectives attempt to reconstruct a murder, three people tell stories about a dying man they really didn't know, and one man looks back on all the people he might have been
Annotation:
Three novels--"Hordubal", "Meteor", "An Ordinary Life"--that confirm Capek as a great Czechoslovakian writer.
