About Lidmila Sovakova

I was born in Prague, where I lived until emigrating in 1970 to France, England and Germany, eventually settling in Paris in 1982. Multilingual, I received MAs in Russian, Czech and French at Charles University in Prague, a Diploma of English Language and Literature from the Cambridge University, England, and the Doctorat d’Etat in French Literature at the Sorbonne in France. After I moved to Paris I found my niche as a novelist. 
        My first novel, LE NAUFRAGE D’UN POISSON DORE, written in French won the prestigious PRIX EUROPEEN DE LA LITTERATURE in 1984.
       Its English version, THE DROWNING OF A GOLDFISH was published in 1990 by PERMANENT PRESS - New York. It was acclaimed as ”An accomplished new voice from Europe, a promising debut and a moving and understated tale of courage by a young survivor living in a society where just to endure is sufficient victory” (THE KIRKUS REVIEWS, 9/1/90).  All my other print books were published by Domhan Books, New York.

Review by: Ray Else on Sep. 21, 2010 :
In this eternal saga of love at any price, we see the young protagonist, Irene, losing her grip on her own self esteem. The characters are complex and in their baffling decisions and repetition of bad choices, all too human.
