Jáchym Topol and Monika Načeva: Keep Your Fridge Full

  • Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
  • When: October 11, 2021, 19:00 – 20:00

Dozens of song lyrics by Jáchym Topol from the years 1979 to 2020 have hitherto never been edited and published together in book form. This difficult editorial task was taken on by Petr Ferenc, who assembled all of Topol’s lyrics, sorted them, put them together, annotated them and supplemented them with a complete discography under the title Udržuj svou ledničku plnou (Keep Your Fridge Full). Topol’s lyrics – for among others the groups Národní třída and Psí vojáci and solo artists Monika Načeva and David Koller – meet all the criteria of poems intended to be read, differing from them only slightly. Indeed, this collection may be regarded as a fully-fledged collection of Topol’s poetry. Wildness, rich imagery, social and intimate themes – all these combine into a highly compelling and revealing collection in and of itself.
