Why do people get together? What do we love about one another? And why in that case do we break up? The writer, the author of an acclaimed novel about František Drtikol, Dějiny světla (The History of Light), is bringing out a new book after six years, Možnosti milostného románu (The Possibilities of the Romance Novel). This extensive text at the intersection of romance novel and essay on writing will be one of the major releases from publishers Host this autumn.
Chaired by Petr Vizina.
