"Tender, funny, touching and true - a unique page-turner." --Stephen Birmingham Author, Our Crowd
"Ernest Kolowrat has succeeded in reaching a depth of feeling and expression that few writers even know about, much less arrive at." --Lewis H. Lapham Editor, Harper's Magazine
"An insightful glimpse into the life and mind of a playboy who is suddenly confronted by one of humanity's greatest questions ... Kolowrat's combination of American and European sensibilities speaks in a frank voice to audiences on both sides of the Atlantic." --Alice Pistkova The Prague Post
Confessions of a Hapless Hedonist was published as a trilogy in the Czech Republic, where each of the volumes made what corresponds to the best-seller list. Ranging over a century of intimate foibles and world events, it is the true story of an outlandish family forced to abandon a life of wealth and privilege in Europe and start anew in the United States. Within the framework of this transition played out on both sides of the Atlantic is the drama of the author's devotion to the unbridled pursuit of pleasure - and his wrenching discovery of the more subtle imperative for self-restraint.
Ernest Kolowrat's most recent publication in the United States: HOTCHKISS - A Chronicle of an American School.
