Personal Quote:

[on Bohumil Hrabal] The first texts by Hrabal were absolutely breathtaking, like Jarmilka. It was a very short novel - it was rough, it was almost surreal, it was mysterious, it had a very tense note to it. Later, in the sixties, Hrabal started to be published-and his texts were smoother, more polished, cleaner, which resulted from the fact that, unfortunately, he listened to his editors. See more »
