Jaroslav Hašek and his fortunes in the World War

Date: 12 June 2014 6:30 PM, Venue: Czech Embassy 26 Kensington Palace Gardens W84QY London

The Czech writer Arnošt Lustig said that Joseph Heller once told him that he could not have written Catch-22 without first reading Hašek’s Švejk. In Hašek’s bitterly funny tale, a crazy state bureaucracy traps a hapless soldier - in much the same way Heller's hero Yossarian is trapped. You are cordially invited to the Czech Embassy to rediscover the power of Jaroslav Hašek and his brave soldier.
