Pirouettes on a Postage Stamp by Bohumil Hrabal
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Novelist Bohumil Hrabal (1914 97) was born in Brno, Czechoslovakia and spent decades working at a variety of laboring jobs before turning to writing in his late forties. From that point, he quickly made his mark on the Czech literary scene; by his death he was ranked with Jaroslav Ha ek, Karel Capek, and Milan Kundera as among the nation s greatest twentieth-century writers. Known for writing about political questions with humor and vivid expressiveness, Hrabal also was given to experimentation his early novel "Dancing Lessons for the Advanced in Age," for example, consists of a single extended sentence. "Pirouettes on a Postage Stamp" carried Hrabal s experimentation to the field of autobiography. On its surface a verbatim record of an oral interview conducted by Hungarian journalist Laszlo Szigeti, the book confuses and confounds with false starts, digressions, and philosophical asides. Yet despite all the games and distractions, Hrabal s personality shines through, compelling and unforgettable, making "Pirouette on a Postage Stamp" an unexpected treat for any lover of Czech literature."
