City Sister Silver by Jachym Topol
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The most important Czech novel of the 1990's, this modern epic captures the emotional dislocation that followed the Czech's new-found freedom in 1989. Winner of the Egon Hostovsky Prize for the best Czech book of the year, it was the only post- -Velvet Revolution title included in a writers' and critics' list of the 100 Greatest Czech Books of the Century. A phantasmagoria of story-telling, including dreams, horror, intrigue, romance and satire, it expresses the feelings of a generation. 'A first novel the way 'The Tin Drum' and 'Midnight's Children' were first novels' - Newsday
