An anthology of texts by young Czech authors translated into German. How and where is it possible to meet Czech literature? Perhaps in the Prague metro? And is the Czech pub still a unique source of inspiration? This book takes the reader on a wild ride through the images, styles and voices of contemporary Czech literature. Most of the short stories, poetry and other texts by the eighteen authors were translated into German for the first time for this anthology.

The book contains texts by: Bianca Bellová, Ondřej Buddeus, Dora Čechova, Vladimíra Čerepková, Irena Dousková, Emil Hakl, Petr Hruška, Václav Kahuda, Dora Kaprálová, Hana Lundiaková, Igor Malijevský, Jaroslav Rudiš, Tereza Semotámová, Petra Soukupová, Alžběta Stančáková, Michal Šanda, Filip Topol and Eva Turnová.
