Dancing in the Dark

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
The eighth volume of the Jazz Saga is an ironic romance of love at any price and of dreams fading away in the shrill light of reality. There is love with breath-in and deception with breath-out as the protagonists get confronted with themselves and the indispensable others.

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: Lenka Junkova on Feb. 28, 2013 :
Once Irene took off her infinitely fast life journey. The farther she is, the more she knows, that she can be surrounded by many people, but the only safe place is her inner vacuum. Thats why she could stay so calm in the middle of the crash and burns and new lights on the horizon.

Hold on to your hats as tempestuous Irene takes us one more time on her love-go-round. If only she realized that Egon has become her true love!
