Hrabal’s two linked novels feature two of the most exuberant and captivating characters I’ve encountered in recent memory. One, the wife of a brewery manager, has the vigor of a Austro­Hungarian Whitman (if you can imagine that) and the other, the brewery manager’s brother, is a strutting and boasting locals-only Don Quixote. An absolute joy to read.
