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). A "must-have" title for Ivan Klima collectors. This title is no longer in print as a hardcover and is now collectible. This copy has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the greatest writers of the 20th century. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER IVAN KLIMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0802116957. $20.00
