Karel Michal, translated by David Short
One of the most successful Czech prose books of the 60s, Everyday Spooks by Karel Michal has become famous by original satire aimed at everyday reality in the communist Czechoslovakia of the 50s and 60s. Short stories full of grotesque, often absurd humour joins the theme of meetings on the edge of imagination and reality, which brings together normal people (accountant, officer, editor, worker, castellan) with extraordinary phenomenon to show the character of the strange times - empty, absurd, even unreal - on the confrontation with their actions.
