Hugely engaging collection of pieces by Karel Čapek, one of the great European writers of the last century.
Playful and provocative, irreverent and inspiring, Čapek is perhaps the best-loved Czech writer of all time. Novelist and playwright, famed for inventing the word ‘robot’ in his play RUR, Čapek was a vital part of the burgeoning artistic scene of Czechoslovakia of the 1920s and 30s. This selection of his writing, translated into English for the first time, contains his essential ideas.
Selected and Translated by Sárka Tobrmanová-Kühnová
‘Čapek is not just a Czech writer, he is a writer of world stature, and he confronts in his journalism subjects that matter to us all.’ John Carey
