Czech this out.

Boggins, in massy company, will be in your area next August - provided your area is North-Eastern Bohemia. In a hintellectual hendeavour to ingratiate himself with the locals he has identified some authors with whose works he plans to become familiar.

  • Josef Skvorecky
  • Bohumil Hrabal
  • Ivan Klima
  • Karel Capek

... will do for starters. Mr Hrabal, it is said, was a Prague "defenestree" in 1997:
According to some sources, he was trying to feed the pigeons, according to others he commited suicide.

Plenty there to get me going. Any suggestions or comments gladly received, as ever, apart from the usual one.
