9780099540625: Dancing Lessons for the Advanced in Age (Vintage Classics)

This Rabelaisian tale is composed of a single rambling sentence by the narrator, a shoemaker nearing 70 years of age. One drunken thought triggers another, as he delivers a lengthy monologue to six sunbathing women."

About the Author:

Bohumil Hrabal was born in 1914 in Brno-Zidenice, Moravia. He received a degree in Law from Prague's Charles University, and lived in Prague since the late 1940s. In the 1950s he worked as a manual laborer in the Kladno ironworks, from which he drew inspiration for his "hyper-realist" texts he was writing at that time. He won international acclaim for such books as I Served the King of England and Too Loud a Solitude. Hrabal is considered, along with Jaroslav Hasek and Karel Capek, as one of the greatest Czech writers of the 20th century, and perhaps the most important in the post-war period. In February 1997 he flew out of his hospital window never to return.
