Jachym Topol is the award-winning young writer from Prague, famous in his youth as an underground poet and songwriter, and now for writing the book that has most successfully and imaginatively captured the dislocation brought about by the fall of communlsm. CITY, SISTER, SILVER is a unforgettable literary account of post-communist Prague. Dreams, adventures, hallucinations, myth, memories, and news events interweave to conjure up the young hero's frightening - yet also comic and exhilarating - pilgrimage through the inferno of his country's recent history. Undergoing all sorts of fantastical situations, including a near-journalistic account of the flight of the East Germans in 1989, and a trip to Auschwitz, where he and his friends wade through the bones of the murdered, Potok, the 20 year-old narrator struggles to find his way in the almost post-apocalyptic world he finds himself in.
