Alexandra Berkova & Magdalena Platzova, Short Stories by Czech women

Two leading Czech women writers, Alexandra Berkova and Magdalena Platzova, will read extracts from Povidky, collection of short stories, in which young women drift through Prague wondering about unplanned pregnancies, a child reflects on the Christian concept of sinfulness, drunken men banter over interminable card games, teenage girls smoke in school toilets, and a woman's salvation comes in the unexpected form of pickled men's buttocks
