From the celebrated novelist comes his autobiography in story form One of the most celebrated writers of our time, Skvorecky's books have been honoured all over the world for their passion, wry humour, insights into human and political frailties and breathtaking style. When Eve Was Naked is no exception. It is the ultimate collection of the Danny stories and as close to autobiography as Skvorecky will ever write. Organized chronologically into four parts, the stories reveal the important facets of this writer's life - childhood, the Second World War, the communist era in Czechoslovakia and the Canada years. From forced labour camps to the '68 Soviet invasion and from the politics of revolt to the craft of writing, Danny's life mirrors Skvorecky's own. While there is tragedy here, there is also joy and girls - beautiful, tempting, life-affirming girls. Lush, poignant and beautifully written, this is vintage Skvorecky.
