Back in the saddle again. I just finished my third draft of the Anna Zonová story I've been translating. Tonight I'm going to an event at the Mayflower Hotel, hosted by the Czech Center New Yorkfor director Vladimir Michalek, whose film Autumn Spring received a great write-up in yesterday's New York Times: "Keeping the Reaper at Bay With Mischievous Exuberance." I think it's his best yet. And everyone in this country will get a chance to see it, because it's been picked up for distribution by First Look. Kudos to Mr. Michalek.
