Due to the transformation of newspapers the art of the “feuilleton”, or short literary essay, is slowly disappearing, but through fifty contributions to the genre (and in five short stories), Tereza Boučková (1957) proves that she has mastered the craft. In short and cogent texts she deals with the full spectrum of life, its pleasant aspects and its torments, “the love of the bike” (which is the subtitle of the book), freedom, the Lilliputianism of language, visits to exhibitions, and life in Germany (where she stayed on scholarship). Writer, screenwriter, journalist and translator, Tereza Boučková, daughter of writer and playwright Pavel Kohout, first aroused readers’ interest through her powerful autobiographical and critical books Indian Run (1991) and The Year of the Rooster (2008).
