Indecent Dreams

Author(s): Arnost Lustig; Josef Skvorecky (Afterword by); Iris Urwin-Levit (Translator); Vera Borkovec (Translator); Paul Wilson (Translator)

Hardback fiction

In these three novellas, Arnost Lustig explores the existential interiors of those at the margin of disaster. A German prostitute assigned to Prague, a girl in a Nazi home for orphans, and a young woman working as a cashier in a movie theater lose themselves in a world of cruelty and collapsing social order--while their inner worlds teem with sexual fantasy, naive idealism, vengefulness, and visions of justice. Yet these so-called indecent dreams cannot compare with the obscenity of cruelty and domination legitimated by the Nazi imagination."
