From back cover: Josef Skvorecky's novels have established him as a major author around the world, but his less well known essays include some of his most stimulating writings. "Talkin' Moscow Blues" is the first-ever collection of Skvorecky's essays, reviews, and interviews. Here are deeply personal stories about the friends and events that have shaped his beliefs and his writings; thoughtful examinations of the nature of art, politics, and freedom; reviews of writers such as Faulkner and Kafka, and filmmakers Jiri Menzel and Francis Coppola. And sprinkled throughout ar Skvorecky's livey commentaries on the foibles of both East and West.
Review: This book gives you some insight to the authors experiences and how they shaped the development of his characters. A fascinating read for a fan of his work.
