“This is my life’s work,” says Radka Denemarková. “I have taken stock in this book of everything I have understood and not understood in my 50 years up to that point. I wrote as if it were the last.” The Czech author spent five years writing “Hours of Lead”, it was finished in 2018 and became a bestseller and book of the year in her home country the following year. Now the German translation is available. Tonight Denemarková will read from the novel in Vienna.
