ISBN:0807608610. Czech Novel. Translated from the German by Alex Page. 215 pages. hardcover. . Jacket design - Ross Studio. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Pavel Kohout’s WHITE BOOK is an elegantly written chronicle of the absurd, the story of Adam Juracek, a teacher of physical education and drawing in a Bohemian spa, who becomes the first person to break the law of gravity by rising gently in his own dwelling and planting his feet firmly on the ceiling. Comrade Juracek’s private levitation becomes public, challenging the work of Comrade Isaac Newton and bringing down on himself the outraged and outrageous reactions of the state and the guardians of psychiatric dogma. Pavel Kohout has constructed an elaborate satire, documenting Adam Juracek’s adventures from the imaginary future of the 21st century. There is a ‘springtime’ of high hopes when all the young people are on his side—a pamphlet issued on Juracek’s behalf recalls those May days in 1968 when the youth of Prague were conjuring up the memory of the Reformation martyr, Jan Hus. Then the government declares a national emergency, and Juracek is tried and turned over to a succession of psychiatrists, all of whom he baffles—all that is, but one. He emerges in the year 2000, following a United Nations amnesty, knowing only his identification number and reciting Newton’s formula. Noted Prague journalist Bedrich Utitz, in praising WHITE BOOK, has said: ‘We live with absurdity, where acknowledged and proven truth is persecuted and the converse is declared to be truth. Kohout deals with this absurdity—not only with Socialist irrealism, but also with the absurdity he must live with in his homeland.’. PAVEL KOHOUT, a native of Prague, is one of the foremost writers of Czechoslovakia. He worked as a journalist and reporter for radio and television and later entered the Czech diplomatic service as cultural attaché in Moscow. Since 1955 he has devoted himself to writing. He is the author of two collections of poetry, 18 plays and stage adaptations, including POOR MURDERER which premiered in English on Broadway in October 1976 and was described by Clive Barnes in The New York Times as ‘a strange, dazzling and intellectual play that zigzags across the stage and ricochets across the mind.’ In addition, he has to his credit ten screen plays and two works of prose, one of which, FROM THE DIARY OF A COUNTERREVOLUTIONARY, was published in this country to wide critical acclaim. . inventory #5067.
