Jachym Topol is the award-winning young writer from Prague, famous in his youth as an underground poet and songwriter, and now for writing the book that has most successfully and imaginatively captured the dislocation brought about by the fall of communlsm. CITY, SISTER, SILVER is a unforgettable literary account of post-communist Prague. Dreams, adventures, hallucinations, myth, memories, and news events interweave to conjure up the young hero's frightening - yet also comic and exhilarating - pilgrimage through the inferno of his country's recent history. Undergoing all sorts of fantastical situations, including a near-journalistic account of the flight of the East Germans in 1989, and a trip to Auschwitz, where he and his friends wade through the bones of the murdered, Potok, the 20 year-old narrator struggles to find his way in the almost post-apocalyptic world he finds himself in.
Winner of the Egon Hostovsky Prize as the best Czech book of the year, this epic novel powerfully captures the sense of dislocation that followed the Czechs' newfound freedom in 1989. More than just the story of its young protagonist--who is part businessman, part gang member, part drifter--it is a novel that includes terrifying dream scenes, Czech and American Indian legends, a nightmarish Eastern European flea market, comic scenes about the literary world, and an oddly tender story of the love between the protagonist and his spiritual sister.
