Launch of a Book by 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.

Introduction of the event will be given by Peter Zusi of UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies, and it will be followed by panel discussion featuring David Short, translator and Dr. Rajendra Chitnis of the University of Bristol.
Questions are invited.
The book will be on sale.
Admission is free.
