Richard’s Latest Book and Tour
Out on October 2nd with Carnegie Mellon University Press
Written over the course of more than twenty years, The Great Czech Navy is a collection of stories that chronicles the relationship between Czech citizens and Americans who chose to live in their midst from 1990 more or less to the present. Post-Velvet Revolution Prague is the stage on which a new nation’s ancient culture is encountered by American expatriates often ill-prepared to fathom its depth and complexity, but who are dazzled by its beauty and inscrutable relation to the rest of the world.
