MY CRAZY CENTURY. PART TWO.

By Ivan Klima. His Time in London & USA. Liked Kafka,s Quote. About How Praha, gets a Grip of You. " This Little Mother Has Claws ". The Period when Dubcek was in Control. Where Slovakia had More Sway, over what happened in CZ. His Story. The First time He went to a Dance. The Railwaymans Ball, at Vinohrady Theater. Pavel Kohout. Thrown Down Stairs. Not Allowed Entry. After Clinic visit. Taken to Vaclav Havels, in Dejvice. Klima Nervous of this. Having Knocked Some of Havel,s Family Crystal. At Earlier Havel Birthday Event. Havel Laughed this off. Saying Table Needed Mending. Far Earlier. You Sometimes Forget How Much Czechs Suffered under Communist Control. Klima, Followed, Had Breath tests. Lost Control of his Car. Interviewed Many Times. Had Problems getting Work. If i was in CZ, at this Time. Feel I would have been in Constant Peril. Would Not be able to have Kept Quiet. Very Good Klima Essay about how Life was in Exile. Plus the One. About how We are Killing Everything Off in Nature. We are a Greedy Insular Society. Saying it will End in War, or Plague. We Will have to Return to Basics. Where Title of the Book Comes From. " My Crazy Century ". Klima Getting his Just Rewards. Royalty Payment for Cartoon " Little Mole " Film. Plus a Great UK Review of His Book " Love & Garbage ". Then Freedom Arrives. Soon after Jan Palach Anniversary. Havel is Appointed President. Line from Havel,s Play " Audience ". Good Way to Finish. Great Klima Read.
