Obsluhoval jsem anglického krále. Povídky. 1971. [I Served the King of England. Stories. 1971.]

(Praha): (Jazz Petit, Jazzová Sekce.), (1982). First (semiofficial) edition. In original, illustrated paper. 301, (1) p. In fine condition.

Hrabal finished this story already in 1971, but at that time he was under censorship, so the story could be spread only as samizdat. “Jazzová Sekce” that published first in 1982, was a civil association in the socialist Czechoslovakia to publish and propagate jazz, underground and counter culture.

Hrabal’s story has been adapted to movie by Jiří Menzel in 2006. The two already worked together on the “Closely Observed Trains” (1965) that won the Oscar in 1968.

Bohumil Hrabal (1914–1997) regarded as one of the best Czech writers of the 20th century.
