It has taken me over ten years to research and write Prague, Capital of the Twentieth Century: A Surrealist History, the sequel to The Coasts of Bohemia (Princeton University Press 1998). On the weekend I received an advance bound proof copy. It felt good!
656 pages, 62 illustrations, cloth $35.00/£24.95, Princeton University Press Spring 2013.
“A triumph! Sayer’s indispensable work is at once magisterial and puckish, authoritative and subversive, intellectually dense and brilliantly accessible.” Michael Beckerman, New York University
“This is a fascinating and brilliantly written narrative that combines elements of literary guide, biography, cultural history, and essay. Writing with warm engagement, and drawing on his detailed knowledge of Czech literature, art, architecture, music, and other fields, Derek Sayer provides a rich picture of a dynamic cultural landscape.” Jindřich Toman, University of Michigan
The book is already listed at amazon.com and amazon.co.uk
A fellow blogger here, found your site via Typo3,
and I have a piece of advice: write more. Literally, it seems as though
you depended on the video clip to drive your point home.
It’s obvious you know a lot, so why not use your knowledge to write something more considerable and put the video as something supplementary (if there at all)?
