The Magnesia Litera award for Czech Book of the Year has gone to ‘Hodiny z olova’ (Hours of Lead) by Radka Denemarková, a novel inspired by the author’s stay in China. Denemarková has previously won Magnesia Litera awards for prose, non-fiction and best translation.
The prestigious Magnesia Litera award for prose went to Pavla Horáková’s ‘Teorie podivnosti’ (A Theory of Strangeness) about the life of a young researcher at the fictional Institute of Interdisciplinary Human Studies. Prizes in six other categories were also handed out at Sunday’s awards ceremony in Prague.
