Translated from the Czech with an introduction by Paul Wilson.
Vaclav Havel is one of the most important European writers of our time. In 1979 he was sentenced to four and a half years of hard labour for his involvement in the Czech human rights movement, Charter 77. In prison he was allowed to write to his wife, Olga, once a week. He used the opportunity for profound reflections, on theatre, society and philosophy. These letters form a remarkable document, and a work of lasting value.
'From Havel, we learn that the true heroes of our time are those who stay the course.' Bruce Chatwin.
