Write The First Customer Review

The Czech Republic, an often-occupied, subversively resistant, and literature-obsessed country, has produced more than its share of literary figures in the second half of the 20th century. Here is the first collection of short stories and novel excerpts by contemporary Czech women writers. These sixteen writers combine the often ironic style of old Czech literature with postmodern consciousness in texts that question identity and history, but also spin new fairy tales.
