LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Alfred A Knopf, New York - first US edition ISBN:0394584414, 1990. Hardcover, 6" x 8¾", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. The author of this work, a celebrated playwright and defender of human rights, Vaclav Havel, was elected president of Czechoslovakia in 1989, and these are his memoirs - derived from months of long-distance conversations, via letter and tape recorder, with a Czech journalist living in West Germany. Havel recounts his priviledged upbringing, his life in theatre, and his involvement in the Prague Spring of 1968, and his part in the long struggle to bring moral and civic responsibility back into his country's public life following the Soviet incursion. Police harassment, years in prison, the banning of his plays are all treated with candor and wit here.
