Author information

Karel Capek (1890-1938) is generally considered the greatest Czech author of the first half of this century. He was Czechoslovakia's leading novelist, playwright, story writer, and columnist, and the spirit of its short-lived democracy. His plays appeared on Broadway soon after their debut in Prague, and his books were translated into many languages.

Review quote

"Enjoyable philosophical novels can be counted on a hand or two. ... Now, American readers can add to this skimpy list this obscure but thoroughly deserving trilogy." --"Washington Post Book World"
