Tightrope! A Bohemian Tale
A novel of unexpected originality, exceptional for its remarkably engaging testimony and its uncommonly sophisticated and refined structure and style. That the fateful year of 1948 -- after which nothing can happen because everything has already happened -- was the year of the author's birth is symbolic. The novel is set in the 1950s, the time of the author's and narrator's childhood, and everything that happens around the child is seen through her eyes. Her entire childhood is strange -- matched and in part caused by the strangeness of this tragic and bizarre interlude in our history. Much is concealed in the single sentence: Our estate, the centre of our faith for the future and any retrospective hope. The key to understanding this tale is the deep-rooted trauma arising from the collectivization of a large part of the family property. --Vladimír Karfík, RESPEKT 27, July 2007 (review of original novel in Czech)I believe that all readers, whatever their different cultural experiences, will find in this novel something to identify with, and I hope that, through the personal accounts of the author, they will be able to trace the complex path which our nation travelled not so long ago. --Václav Havel --Early Responses, Tightrope!Readers who enjoy good prose will find to their liking this imaginatively written and entertaining -- but essentially tragic -- novel set in the little-known 50s of the last century in Czechoslovakia. --Josef Skvorecký --Early Responses, Tightrope!
