LOVE LETTER IN CUNEIFORM.

Book by Tomas Zmeskal. Attended Event of Book Reading at Waterstones, Sheffield. Reading in Both Czech & English. Author Visiting UK. Moving on from Sheffield, to London, then Bristol. Lucky Enough to Speak to Him. Talked about Sport. Tomas was a Shot Putter. Enjoys Classical Music, Like Myself. He was a Clarinetist. Cover of the Book, Not Liked by the Author. Choose by the Publisher. Catering for the Western Market. Plain Cover Works Well in the Original Czech Version. Asked Him about His Writing. Likes Working in Solitude, with No Background Noise.

His Style of Writing reminds me of My Favourite Czech Writer, Jachym Topol. Translator of Book. Alex Zucker, Thinks of Jiri Grusa. Zmeskal has Won Many Awards. One by My Hero, Josef Skvorecky.

Book, Good Story Telling of a Family,s Life in a Generation. Through the Second World War, then under Communism Rule. People Who You Can Really Relate to. Was Emotional with the Deaths of the Prominent Characters. Never Ceases to Amaze Me. How Czechs Suffered Under Rule. If You Disliked Someone, Or Desired. Strings Could be Pulled to Achieve Your Aims. From Power.

Praha City of History. Book also Touch,s On Science. Plus Interesting Viewpoints on Czech Life. Everybody takes Something Different From a Book. My Favourite Person is Aunt Anna. Much Cleverer then People Think. Who Comes Alive in Old Age. Plenty of These Strong Czech Women. Some Who Terrorize Food Store Owners. They Hold Much Sway. Much Liked Too, the Character, Pastry Chef.

Final Note. Tomas Zmeskal. Who in Praha. Works as a University & High School Teacher. As Well as Writing. Must Take Great Credit. Teaching Sheffield University Students. Creative Writing. Which was a Great Thrill for Them.
