Mercedes-Benz: From Letters to Hrabal

Pawel Huelle, Author, Antonia Lloyd-Jones, Translator Serpent's Tail $14 (154p) ISBN 978-1-85242-869-3
Written in the form of a letter to Bohumil Hrabal, Huelle's autobiographical novel (complete with personal photographs) is also an homage to the late Czech writer. With long, expressive and visual sentences characteristic of his predecessor's work, Huelle tells the stories of three generations in Poland, from its pre-war independence through the communist years to the uncertain period of Huelle's youth at the turn of the century.
