9781846270864: The Visible World

'My mother knew a man during the war. Theirs was a love story, and like any good love story, it left blood on the floor and wreckage in its wake'. As a boy growing up in New York, his parents' memories of their Czech homeland seem to belong to another world, as distant and unreal as the fairy tales his father tells him. It is only as an adult, when he makes his own journey to Prague, that he is finally able to piece together the truth of his parents' past: what they did, who his mother loved, and why they were never able to forget.

Book Description Portobello Books Ltd, UK. Paperback. Book Condition: New. First Edition. Available Now. Book Description: 'My mother knew a man during the war. Theirs was a love story, and like any good love story, it left blood on the floor and wreckage in its wake'. As a boy growing up in New York, his parents' memories of their Czech homeland seem to belong to another world, as distant and unreal as the fairy tales his father tells him. It is only as an adult, when he makes his own journey to Prague, that he is finally able to piece together the truth of his parents' past: what they did, who his mother loved, and why they were never able to forget. : Review: 'Slouka has been compared with Sebald, Ondaatje and Kundera - and not without reason': -- Sunday Telegraph, Katie Owen : 'The Visible World has the intensity of a thriller combined with exquisite and moving literary prose': -- Publishing News: A profoundly moving and compelling story of romantic heroism.: -- Good Book Guide: `A haunting and cleverly constructed narrative' -- Sunday Times : From the Inside Flap: This is a story about memory and concealed histories, and about the way that the most fiercely-held secrets of the past eventually force their way to the surface. It begins with a boy, the child of Czech immigrants to the US, who is brought up hearing the ancient myths, and the folktales of his parents' homeland. As he grows older, he becomes aware that the one story he hasn't been told is what his parents did during the war. It is only as an adult, when he makes a journey back to Czechoslovakia, that he discovers their part in the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, the notorious 'butcher of Prague'. : Embedded at the heart of this gripping history is a powerful love story - of a tragic passion and an enduring commitment. Plotted with all the intensity of a thriller, The Visible World is immediately involving, and a novel to delight on every level - intellectual, literary and emotional. -- Size: 12.9 x 2.1 x 19.8 cm. 256 pages.
