A Magnesia Litera Award-winning collection of eight short stories and novellas by the young writer and Jiří Orten Award winner, Marek Šindelka.
Hats off for this intelligently written and elaborate book, bringing together ten well-chosen texts which undoubtedly deserve to be called short stories. In it Marek Šindelka demonstrates that this prose form does not have to be – as many writers mistakenly believe – only a skilfully related record of an entertaining anecdote from life, but also a distinctive form of literary thinking and a linguistically refined testimony.
An English translation of Ladislav Fuks’ The Cremator has just been published as a new addition to the series.
Actor Paul Giamatti will lend his voice to the novella's main character Hanta.
The focus of the Czech national stand this year is Václav Havel.
The film about frenzied illegal prospectors for the mineral moldavite premiered on 8th September.
The freely available e-book contains 10 stories by some of the best Czech sci-fi and fantasy authors.
The jury of the prestigious award will select the winner at the beginning of November.
