About the Author

Bohumil Hrabal (1914-97) was born in Brno, Czechoslovakia, and studied law. By his death, he was ranked among the greatest Czech writers of the twentieth century. His novel Closely Watched Trains was turned into an Academy Award-winning film.
Paul Wilson lives in a suburban neighborhood much like the one he turned into a horror playground in his novel Hostage. He lives with his wife, daughter, son, and three cats, one of which actually likes him. He has worked a spectacular list of jobs including retail district manager, a 911 operator, and the head of a college security department.

Reviews

Hrabal is quite capable of a Chekhovian realism, but always watchful for the splendid and sublime.--James Wood
A master.
