With the mordant humor and sardonic irony that marks his novels, Skvorecky, one of the preeminent Czech writers of the post-World War II generation, looks back on a life of writing amidst the political repression of his native Czechoslovakia. This is a masterfully written memoir by the celebrated author of The Bass Saxophone and The Republic of Whores.
