About the Author
Praise For Dancing Lessons for the Advanced in Age…
“Hrabal, to my mind, is one of the greatest living European prose writers.” —Philip Roth, 1990
“Dancing Lessons unfurls as a single, sometimes maddening sentence. The gambit works. Something about that slab of wordage carries the eye forward, promising an intensity simply unattainable by your regularly punctuated novel.” —Ed Park, The New York Times Book Review
“. . . what Hrabal has created is an informal history of the indomitable Czech spirit. And perhaps. . . the human spirit.” —The Times (London)
