Jan Novák: Kundera: His Czech Life and Times
- Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
- When: September 15, 2020, 19:00 – 21:00
The leading contemporary Czech writer Jan Novák detonated a bomb on the domestic literary scene in June, with his monograph simply entitled Kundera setting off an avalanche or responses, from negative to highly enthusiastic. It has been the most discussed book in this country in many years, if not ever.
Passions have calmed in the meantime and Jan Novák has returned from a grant-aided stay in Berlin, so the time has come for him to introduce the book to Czech readers.
Petr Onufer will moderate the evening, which alongside the author will also feature the book’s editor Michael Špirit.
