Cold War Prague. As Katka learns to navigate her way through the world, resolved to barge ahead in a series of crazy-kid adventures, she only echoes the wild, discordant, and often hilarious vibe of her family. Existential issues fight for their spotlight with everyday realities of a dysfunctional socialist regime.
Out of sight, the adults in her life commit clandestine adventures of their own. Their life vibrates with explosive energy next to the double-speak of work and school, where synthetic rum lubricate the wheels of society, and where banned books change hands on the sly.
If you're up for a story of resilience and hope that, despite all odds, echoes through time from the 1970's Czechoslovakia, settle down for an unexpected and often hilarious read that tugs on the heartstrings.
This collection precedes the already-published stories of escape and immigration in the "Cancelled Czech Files: On The Run" volume.
