Capek mystery stories from the 1920s are among the most enjoyable and unusual ever written though only a few have previously appeared in English and then only in poor translations. This new collection - admirably translated from the Czech by Norma Comrada - should introduce a whole new legion of admirers to this leading fiction writer, playwright and columnist whose work includes War with the Newts'.'

About the Author

Karel Capek (18901938) is generally considered the greatest Czech author of the first half of this century. He was Czechoslovakia's leading novelist, playwright, story writer, and columnist, and the spirit of its short-lived democracy. His plays appeared on Broadway soon after their debut in Prague, and his books were translated into many languages. Capek expressed himself in the form of accessible and highly enjoyable writing."

Reviews

"" It's time to read Capek again for his insouciant laughter, and the anguish of human blindness that lies beneath it. "
