Sandstone rock cities, guidebookish notes of old Vlachs, alchemy of the landscape with its unrelenting “lyrical subjects” or the quest for fatherly love – these are the main features of Radek Fridrich’s (born 1968) new book. And what about its mysterious title?

Krooa krooa is a haunting screech of a raven, hovering above as a witness of the land and the fates of the people who live in it. The author is tightly connected to the northern Czech landscape, tirelessly depicting its mythologies and the Czech-German history in his works – at least since the collection V zahradě Bredovských (The Garden of the Bredovský Family) published by Host in 1999.
