Letters from the estate of Johannes Nádherný. Alena Wagnerová, the author of a bestseller on the life of the Czech baroness and benefactor Sidonie Nádherná, explores in her newest book the fate of Sidonie’s brother, a decadent “anti-hero”, chivalrous soul, aesthete and suicide. The focus of the evening was not just be the book but the work of this unjustly overlooked figure of European format, the Czech-German prose writer and member of the Thirty-sixers Alena Wagnerová. The event was hosted by Dora Kaprálová.
