Jachym & Filip Topol

Manchester Literature Festival is delighted to welcome Jachym Topol, accompanied by his musician brother Filip. Topol's fourth novel Gargling with Tar, set during the crushing of the Prague spring of his boyhood, has been described as a Czech Tin Drum. Jáchym Topol's family was part of Prague’s altenative scene. His father was regarded alongside Václav Havel as one of the most important dramatists in Czechoslovakia and his younger brother Filip became a well-known rock musician while still a teenager. Jachym’s novels have been translated into many languages and he has been described by Boyd Tonkin as “the Martin Amis-cum-Irvine Welsh of the post-1989 transition”.
