Have you ever wondered what a story written by a beam of light would be like? Find out in this EU Prize for Literature-winning novel about photographer František Drtikol.
[A History of Light] represents a remarkable and substantial experiment, offering an account about Drtikol, the history of photography as a new art form, the cultural climate of the incredibly interesting and turbulent period around the end of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the First World War and the 1920s, but also about the narrative possibilities of contemporary novels.
—Petr A. Bílek
