Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0945774338, Paperback)As the title indicates, there is Czech literature after Kundera, Havel, and their coevals. In Daylight in Nightclub Inferno we have the best starting point in English translation to start reading some of these important European voices. These authors were raised under Communism and lived to see its decay and collapse; the volume's 20 stories and novel excerpts are ordered and selected especially to illuminate that still-combustible part of the world and the rare literary sensibilities of the Czech people. Representing an amazing range of styles, the 16 writers collected here, though perhaps little-known outside their own country, include numerous award-winning talents: Jachym Topol, Daniela Fischerova, Vasek Koubek, and Pavel Brycz, to name just a few. Editor Elena Lappin, who grew up Czechoslovakia and now lives in London, compiled the volume.
