DOWNLOAD ð eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Á Bohumil Hrabal Bohumil Hrabal Á 7 DOWNLOAD FREE READ Městečko kde se zastavil čas The Little Town Where Time Stood Still contains two linked narratives by the incomparable Bohumil Hrabal whom Milan Kundera has described as “Czechoslovakia’s greatest writer” “Cutting It Short” is set before World War II in a. Two connected novellas or two short novels really about 150 pages each by A Czechoslovakian author whom Milan Kundera called Czechoslovakia s greatest living writer They both feature everyday life in a small Czech town and give their stories with a lot of humor and a bit of fantasy It s amazing to me that although the two novels take us from pre World War II through the Soviet occupation of the country after the war the war is hardly mentioned even though Czechoslovakia was in the thick of it No invasions no stories of young men going off to war or returning without limbs no sounds of close or distant gunfire Only in the second novel do we hear of a German officer stationed in the village but that s it The first novel focuses on the wife of the manager of the town s beer brewery She a woman ahead of her time bold brash adventuresome It s 1930 s Europe and horse drawn wagons are still around She is known for her knee length blonde hair She has no children yet and she does not need to work outside the home so she hangs out with the men in the brewery drinking beer with them on their breaks she climbs the brewery s chimney and gets the firemen to come to rescue her she turns a sausage making event into a blood smearing contest She gets away with all this because her husband adores her Eventually she cuts her hair short the title cuts her dog s tail off cuts her skirts to reveal her knees and goes bicycling through town giving the sedate townsfolk something shocking to remember Opposites attract so of course her husband believes in order regularity repetition predictability etc They genuinely love each other Her husband s brother comes to live with them The manager brother gives him a job as a laborer at the brewery He romps with the town prostitutes and ratchets up the humor a couple of notches Here s a sample of the writing style with almost no dialog and with long paragraphs with long run on sentences I really enjoyed his writing and I m reminded about another book I reviewed recently Street of Crocodiles by Bruno Schultz where I said it was amazing how Schultz s writing can keep you interested while he writes pages about crumpled bedclothes In this case Hrabal s book I am reviewing now the author begins the story with several pages about how the woman looks forward to the light from the kerosene lamps when the brewery s electric generator shuts down at the end of the workday The sample below also illustrates the main topic of everyday life in the town I glanced at my watch it was time for Bod a Cervinka to have finished his little round No doubt he got his vegetables today for a good price and overjoyed by his bargain he ll have stopped first on the suare at Svoboda s where he ll have had a couple of gills of vermouth and fifty grams of Hungarian salami then he ll have stopped at the Grand where he s sure to have had one small goulash and three Pilsners then to start bringing his little round to its conclusion he will have stopped at the Mikolaska drugstore where lingering in friendly conversation he ll have drunk three glasses of brandy It s also possible however that Bod a was so overjoyed at saving two crowns on his bargain purchase of vegetables that he went on to complete his so called big round that is to say stopping at the Hotel Na Knizeci as well for a black coffee with Original Jamaican rum and finally dropping in for a uick one at the special bar of Louis Wantoch and Co where he had a little noggin of kirsch as a final full stop to his celebration of such a cheap purchase of cauliflower and vegetables for his soup The second novel of the book s title changes perspective It s several years later The woman and her husband have had a son and we now see things from the viewpoint of an 8 or 10 year old boy He hangs out with his crazy uncle who takes him on his rounds to the dives where all the women fuss over the boy The uncle has a hostile relationship with the German officer stationed in town They trade insults in the bars and the prostitutes try to smooth things over when the drunk uncle goes too far To be honest the Uncle s bar jokes all with sexual innuendo get a bit repetitive at times Only in the last 30 pages or so of the second novel do we see why the author got in trouble with the communist authorities They banned his work and copies of his work could only be passed hand to hand as a surreptitious samizdat In this section he talks about how the communist takeover destroyed the town s life The brewery managed was fired by the workers who elected their own supervisor The manager was told You were decent to us and that has to count against you because it meant that you blunted the edge of the class struggle do you see He and his wife are shunned by the townspeople He starts a trucking company with his brother that turns into a Three Stooges affair All the traditional community activities died off church processions and festivals annual fairs nature outings sponsored by political parties village horse rides for the kids the annual masuerade ball the town orchestra and choir summer athletic contest for kids and so on I enjoyed the two stories and consider them good reads despite dragging a bit here and there The author 1914 1997 wrote 20 or so novels about half of which have been translated into English He s best known for the ones titled Too Loud a Solitude and Closely Watched Trains the latter was made into a movie Wikipedia has an interesting piece on his death that I shortened here Hrabal died in 1997 after falling from a window on the fifth floor of a hospital in Prague attempting to feed pigeons It was noted however that suicides were mentioned in several of his books and early in the morning on the day of his death he mentioned an invitation he received in his dream from a dead poet who was buried in the cemetery next to hospital His doctor had no doubts about his death being a suicide According to his wishes he was buried
