Review of Procházková’s Freshta on A Discount Ticket to Everywhere
‘the plot is gripping, the characters convincing and the story ultimately life-affirming…Highly recommended!…Translator Julia Sherwood has done a great job in introducing many unfamiliar words and concepts without burdening the text with long explanations’ A Discount Ticket to Everywhere
More praise for Petra Procházková’s Freshta:
‘Herra’s voice is a revelation, an unexpected blend of humour and pragmatism… a fantastic novel that reads as warm, intelligent fiction…funny, smart and so carefully written that it lit up a region that has, for me, been almost completely obscured by depressingly sterile documentaries and bombastic war reports until now.’ Alex in Leeds
