Presents Ivan Klima's "No Saints Or Angels" in a felicitous English translation. His highly acclaimed novel. An internationally acclaimed author of a now-substantial body of work, Ivan Klima "deconstructs a contemporary Czech family in his latest effort. Kristina, a divorced mother in her 40's, works as a dentist in Prague. Burdened with responsibilities, she is the sole caregiver for her aging, widowed mother, her terminally ill ex-husband and her 15-year-old daughter, Jana, who may or may not be using drugs. Lonely and starved for affection, Kristina begins dating Jan, a former student of her ex-husband and 15 years her junior. This compelling and bleak story is worthy of Klima's formidable international stature" (Publishers Weekly). An absolute "must-have" title for Ivan Klima collectors. This is a Review Copy. The Review Material is laid-in. This title is a late-modern classic. As far as we know, this is the only Review Copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER IVAN KLIMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 4224
