Short biography
Alan Levy was a journalist when he and his family moved to Prague in 1967 so he could work on a musical. Then came the Prague Spring and the Russian-led invasion of Czechoslovakia, events that he reported on and later published books about. He was expelled from Prague in 1971 and lived and worked in Vienna until returning to Prague in 1990 after the overthrow of the Communist government. He became editor-in-chief of The Prague Post and coined the phrase "Prague, the Left Bank of the '90s," which is said to have attracted thousands of young people to the city.
