Michal Viewegh’s new novel, Mráz přichází z Hradu, is a mercilessly sarcastic social-political panopticon features the prime minister Petr Nečas, president Václav Klaus, Prague mayor Bohuslav Svoboda, Mafioso Roman Janoušek, minister of the interior Radek John, archbishop Dominik Duka or the Russian ambassador Sergey Kiselyov, and many others.

The author balances on the very edge of freedom of speech, presenting the reader with a suspenseful and amusing collage which, for all its exaggeration, paints a dangerously faithful picture of the contemporary Czech Republic.
