Original title: Na dvou židlích
Three years after the publishing of Smorgasbords or: What We´re Like, Michal Viewegh introduces his second book of newspaper columns with the most popular texts written for Lidové noviny, one of the Czech Republic’s most widely read and most prestigious dailies, between September 2002 and August 2003. The author draws his inspiration from politics and its leading representatives, and also from his marriage, family and many other topics. Forty-three breezily written columns reflect twelve months of life in the Czech Republic with a remarkable feeling for humour and many witty punch-lines.
"…well-aimed and individually directed diatribes lampooning the mediocrity of our social life. (...) The author does not bet on well-tried means of attracting readers, nor is he afraid to risk missing the target in the execution of his literary escapades."
Aleš Haman, Lidové noviny
