THE MIRACLE GAME.

25-2-16. Josef Skvorecky,s Death. So Soon after That of Vaclav Havel. Was a Big Jolt to Me. My First Venture into Czech Literature. Was His Lieutenant Boruvka Detective Books. Obtained from the Sheffield Central Library.

Traveling Through Time with his Danny Smiricky Character. History Took Me through the Second World War, his Love of Jazz. Plus Skvorecky Stories in Canada. Where Josef was Now Exiled with his Novelist Wife.

The Miracle Game, by Skvorecky. Evolves around a Miracle. Which the Government & Secret Services. Does Everything to Disprove. Danny Now a Teacher. Is Seduced by one of his Students. She Uses Every Trick in the Book. She Finally Hooks Her Bait !.

Skvorecky,s Character,s are Always very Strong. The Wise, Gellen. Father Doufal. A Farmer. Who See,s the Light to be a Priest. Then there is Laura, a True Communist Party Member. Plus Suzi a Torch Singer.

Book Traces the Soviet Invasion. Visits Vienna & Connington, USA. The Czech Countryside Where Time Stands Still. With Meals of Boiled Pigs Head. Plus the Farming Cooperatives & Religion Which Matter to the Regions.

Saw Paul Wilson. In the British Czech Embassy. He Signed his Havel Translated Book. Translates this Too. Pity i Did not Own this then. A Book to Treasure. Complete with Baskerville Type. Printed & Bound in Fairfield, Pennsylvania.

Josef Skvorecky,s Master Skill of Story-Telling, Shines Through Every Page.
