DETAIL TITULU:

In Summer of Caprice (the classic novel of the Twenties that was adapted into the beloved film of the Czech New Wave in the Sixties) the arrival of a magician and his girlfriend to a sleepy spa town sets off a series of events that will turn the lives of everyone in Little Karlsbad upside down. Set over the course of just three days in June, this poetic and comic novel beautifully captures the atmosphere of a small town, as Vančura juxtaposes the mundanity of life with the majesty of language.
The playful narrative, linguistic dexterity, and metatextuality that has only become richer over the decades are hallmarks of this brilliant work of interwar modernism.

“The witty conversation and ingenious dialogues surpass the plot itself.”
—Epoch Times

“Certainly, Vladislav Vančura’s language is a test for any translator’s mettle.”
—Alice Horáčková, MF Dnes
