About the Author

Petr Kral, born in Czechoslovakia in 1941, was a member of the Czech surrealist movement alongside Vratislav Effenberger and the poet Vitezslav Nezval. He moved to Paris in 1968, where in the forty years since he has gained a considerable reputation as a prolific poet, essayist and film critic. He has also written a remarkable two-volume work on the burlesque comedies of the silent era. Petr Kral lives and works in Paris and Prague where he returned in 2008.


It is our blindness, existential blindness which makes the world around us so mysterious. In his discreet way, Petr Kral lifts the veil -- Milan Kundera
