Jáchym Topol - Gargling with Tar

Winner of the Tom Stoppard Prize for Unofficial Literature, Jáchym Topol was a key figure in the Czech samizdat movement and since the Velvet Revolution his writing has given voice to the sense of dislocation that followed the fall of Communism. In conversation with acclaimed journalist Misha Glenny, Topol will be discussing his latest novel, Gargling with Tar, an urgent and blackly humorous account of a young boy – and a country – coming of age in the Soviet era.
