Daniela Hodrova: Prague, I See a City

Set in the year following the fall of Communism, the novel takes the form of a quest in which the hero abandons the material world of everyday society, perceiving it as false, temporary and distracting, and journeys in search of his true identity. A conscious addition to the tradition of Prague literary texts by, for example, Karel Hynek Macha, Gustav Meyrink, and Franz Kafka, who present the city as a hostile living creature or a labyrinthine place of magic and mystery in which the individual human being may easily get lost.
