NOTE FOR MY ENGLISH LISTENER
My dear English listener, please skip to the music for this episode. Should you wish an English transcript for this episode, I will be happy to provide it. I talk about the “Prague spring”, events in 1968 that influenced my family when I was about to be born.

*******************************

Sint 40 de ani de la Primavara de la Praga. Generatia mea era in burtica la mama in mai 1968. Sau in scutece. Milan Kundera a scris “Insuportabila frivolitate a existentei”, inspirat de ce a vazut si trait atunci. Un roman foarte drag generatiei mele, publicat prima oara in franceza in 1984. Un an mai tirziu a fost publicat originalul in limba ceha, la Toronto. Editura se numea 68 Publishers, specializata in literatura exilului cehoslovac.

Despre filmul facut dupa carte, am sa spun doar ca lui Kundera nu I-a placut deloc. Nu a permis nimanui dupa aia sa mai faca film dupa carte.

Mare noroc daca nu stiati de Kundera pina acum, si sper ca nu stiati nici de Travka. In cazul asta, o sa aveti doua intilniri de lunga durata.

ABOUT THE MUSIC. “Vreau sa simt Praga” – ce cintec de betie, de pierzanie, de fascinatie! Imi aminteste de “Cracovia”, fabuloasa compozitie a trupei PRIMA LINIE din Petrosani, undeva prin 1983….
