28 editions published between 1962 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Karel Capek - Life and Work is a look at the important pre-war Czech author of such works as R.U.R., War with the Newts, Three Novels, and Tales from Two Pockets, through the eyes of one of the most important post-war Czech writers, Ivan Klima. It is a personal essay from a writer's more than a critic's point of view. And although originally written in Czech, the book was commissioned by Catbird Press and was therefore written with foreign readers in mind; in other words, no prior knowledge of Capek's writings or his milieu is required."--Jacket

A ship named Hope : two novels by Ivan Klíma( Book )

26 editions published between 1968 and 2011 in Czech and English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dvě prózy. V novele Porota (kterou čtenář měl možnost poznat v rozhlasové adaptaci, odměněné v soutěži Československého rozhlasu v r. 1966, avšak vysílané až r. 1968) se na pozadí otřesné justiční praxe padesátých let očekáváodšestičlenné poroty vyjádření o vině člověka již odsouzeného a popraveného. O románě Loď jménem Naděje autor přiznává, že jeho námět ho napadl na lodi, když se v jedné situaci mohl domnívat, že kapitán chce cestující zahubit,a dodává: "Ta myšlenka o kapitánovi a cestujících vydaných mu na milost a nemilost mě zaujala. Nakonec . . . mi z toho vyšlo něco jiného: příběh o falešném vůdci, snad trochu příšerná zkazka o tajuplné lodi, která už dávnoztratila smysl svéplavby, - i jakási velmi volná parafráze spasitelské legendy."
Czech Eden by Matthew Monteith( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When he first visited the Czech Republic in the 1990s, the rising photographer Matthew Monteith was taken by the details of ordinary life in this country in transition. Captivated by the ineffable--a mood, a sense of place--he made repeated visits, and from 2001-2003 traveled throughout the country with his camera, in hopes of creating a contemporary allegory that would reflect the ideals he had observed in old postcards and in Czech photography from the 1920s and 30s. Combining restraint, brilliant color and a certain thoughtful attention to the uncanny within the everyday, Monteith's photographs parallel a venerable tradition staked out by masters like Joel Sternfeld, and embodied in contemporary work by younger photo-documentarians like Alec Soth. Though at times foreboding, an energetic optimism and humor pervades Monteith's work. His meticulously composed and beautifully produced images focus on individuals, landscapes, oddly stilled cityscapes and the worn traces of the country's long and complex history. Czech Eden, Monteith's first monograph, is not a literal description or documentation, but rather a parable in which the viewer encounters individuals and environments that are cohesive yet contradictory, beautiful but unsettling
