I've read this just before I first went to visit Prague and it certainly colored my impression of the city. Hard to forget the characters, the kind of book where you live with them.
Excellent teen book (or adult) based on the life and exile of Czech poet Ivan Blatny and his English caregiver who discovered the genuine poet within. Rough beginning, but moving tale of life under the Nazi, Communists, and the revolution.
