(From the publisher):
ia a collection of Jan Neruda's intimate, wry, and bitter-sweet stories of life among the inhabitants of the Little Quarter of nineteenth-century Prague. These finely tuned and varied vignettes established Neruda as the quintessential Czech realist--considered by many to be the Charles Dickens of nineteenth-century Czechoslovakia. Through Neruda's writings, the reader can fully appreciate Prague's ever increasing awareness of itself as a Czech, rather than an Austrian city.
