About this title


This energetic and hilarious novel is made even more important by the current final thawing of the long, Communist winter in Czechoslovakia.

The witness in 1948 to a baffling event labled by Catholic townspeople as a miracle and by the Communist Party as a fraud, cynical Czech Danny Smiricky finds himself drawn into an investigation of the event twenty years later during the 1968 Prague Spring
