Format: Paperback
Sckoverecky takes the central theme of a young editor's infatuation with the beautiful and mysterious Lenka Silver and takes us on a thrilling ride through Stalinist-era Prague, where toeing the line is the key to survival. This is more than a murder mystery; Skvorecky plays with the crime story formula, turns it on its head and delivers a priceless social commentary on how writing copy was such a dangerous pastime during the communist regime. The characterisation is rich and the plot builds up to a fantastic conclusion that won't disappoint. Surely one of his most under-rated and overlooked books.
