Josef Škvorecký, CM was a Czech writer and publisher who spent much of his life in Canada. Škvorecký was awarded the Neustadt International Prize for Literature in He and his wife were long-time supporters of Czech dissident writers before the fall of communism in that country/5.

In Josef Škvorecký's first novel written in English, the narrator lives in two radically dissimilar worlds: the exile world of the post-Communist Czech Republic where old feuds, treacherous betrayals, and friendships persevere; and the comfortable.

In any case, this connection gives the book a cyclical nature which it might otherwise lack: in the first story (mentioned above) the young narrator has his first taste of American ginger ale, while in the last story, "A Magic Mountain and a Willowy Wench," a young Canadian reader of Škvorecký's books travels to the author's hometown in Bohemia.

Josef Škvorecký obituary Josef wrote more than 40 books, including his masterpiece, The Engineer of Human Souls, which won the Canadian governor general's award for fiction in   Josef Škvorecký - Biography.

His non-fiction works include Talkin' Moscow Blues, a book of essays on jazz, literature and politics, an autobiography Headed for the Blues, and two books on the Czech cinema including All the Bright Young Men and Women. The Engineer of Human Souls is a labyrinthine comic novelthat investigates the journey and plight of novelist Danny Smiricky, aCzech immigrant to Canada.

As the novel begins, he is a professor ofAmerican literature at a college in Toronto. Out of touch with his youngstudents, and hounded by the Czech secret police, Danny is let loose toroam between past and present, adopting whatever identity 4/5(8).

The Engineer of Human Souls by Josef Škvorecký begins with mention of a ‘wilderness’, which is, for the narrator, the grounds of Edenvale College in snowy Toronto. The use of this word is, of course, intended to emphasise that Danny Smiricky, a Czech by birth, has in a sense been cast out, or, more accurately, has cast himself out, from.

Masterful Czech novelist Skvorecky, who's recently been marking time with detective stories about Lt. Boruvka and Eve Adam, uses mystery elements to enrich the triumphantly comic vein of The Engineer of Lost Souls () by resurrecting his earlier surrogate-hero, dissident novelist/satyr Daniel Smiricky, as the witness, and later the investigator, of a disputed miracle.

Two Murders in my Double Life isn't terribly polished, or a truly satisfactory mystery, but there is enough to hold one's interest for the span of the relatively short book. Skvorecky can irritate and annoy, but he has some clever things to say as well. Biography.
