Jan Balaban in B O D Y

The first week of B O D Y’s month-long Czech issue was finished off with a powerful short story, “Cedar and Hammer”, by the award winning writer Jan Balabán, whose literary output is all the more impressive considering he died at the age of 49. There is next to nothing of Balabán’s work available in English and his novels have been translated almost exclusively into Polish. I added two links to short stories to the B O D Y site and here is the link to a profile of the writer David Vaughn wrote for Radio Prague after the author’s death.
