About the Author:

Jiri Grusa was born in Czechoslovakia in 1938. After receiving a degree from Charles University in Prague in 1962, Grusa became involved with several literary magazines and with the Prague Theater. Grusa was arrested in 1974 for "the crime of initiating disorder" after distributing 19 copies of The Questionnaire and expressing intent to have it published in Switzerland. He was released after two months as a result of worldwide attention and protests although it was one year before the charges were dropped. After his citizenship was revoked in 1981, he moved to West Germany and, ironically, as a result of the political changes of the late 80's, became the Czech ambassador to Germany.
