Through playful poetic prose, imaginatively blending historical and cultural motifs with autobiographical moments, Daniela Hodrová shares her unique perception of Prague. A Kingdom of Souls is the first volume of this author’s literary journey — an unusual quest for self, for one’s place in life and in the world, a world that for Hodrová is embodied in Prague.
“A Kingdom of Souls is a dark and elusive novel, but it is also seductive. Hodrová’s precise expression […] and unexpected perspectives make for an impressively disturbing, compelling text.”
— M.A.Orthofer, The Complete Review
