No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Good-bye, Samizdat offers the first collection of the best of Czechoslovakia's samizdat, i.e. underground, texts from the era 1948 through 1990. Divided into three sections, the volume includes fiction, cultural and political works, and philosophical essays. The writings reflect the thought of some of Czechoslovakia's best-known minds--Klima, Vaculik, and Havel--as well as others yet unknown in the West. Taken together, they capture the artistic and intellectual mood of a country situated at a focal point between East and West at a fascinating point in history.
