Four great short stories exploring Klimas experiences of falling in love as an adolescent and as a young man. All are poignant and moving especially 'My Country' which deserves 5 stars. Of course given the backdrop of WW2 and then communist oppression all the stories are not just about love...Klima is a truly great writer and these stories would be good place to start reading him.

Ivan Klima has a way of telling about life behind the Iron Curtain that somehow doesn't make you pity the people there. His short stories let you explore the past and another culture through the eyes of ordinary people. Klima's style is easy to read and even poetic at times. I would definetly recommend Klima to a friend.

HASH(0x99b712ac) out of 5 stars very nice short-stories from the Czechoslovak communism 5 Feb. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book shows that even the life in the "goulash communism" had some poetics in it. If you want to learn about the lands that were behind the Iron Curtain and don't feel like going through some horrors or thorough scholarly work - choose Klima.
HASH(0x99b71a8c) out of 5 stars I thought it would be a little better 6 Oct. 2013
By Seraph - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was nice to start-- I liked the inner monologues and hypothetical, imagined conversations. The middle of the book is terribly confusing because the author introduces an excess of characters and it's hard to figure out where the plot is going. I have not yet finished it, but considering how long it's been since I picked it up, I don't know that I will.
