Reviews

  • The fantasising and storytelling deliver a body blow of total irreverence to the solemn mythopoeia of monumental historiography

    Times Literary Supplement
  • Hrabal bounces and floats. His mode is a sort of dancing realism, somewhere between fairytale and satire.He is a most sophisticated novelist, with a gusting humour and a hushed tenderness of detail. We should read him

    Julian Barnes
  • Well worth reading

    The Book Magazine
  • A master of rueful comedy and tender eroticism, Hrabal was, for all his eccentricity, a major figure in 20th-century world literature.

    Jonathan Coe
