[The line drawings throughout are charming, and that's probably the only reason this book is on line at all, that, along with the preface, which tells the author's wistfulness and nostalgia for times past, I empathize.] From the Preface: "It has been my desire in the following pages to present a picture of society in this country as it was when the Queen ascended the throne. The book is an enlargement of a paper originally contributed to 'The Graphic.' I have written several additional chapters and have revised all the rest. The chapter on Law and Justice has been written for this volume by my friend Mr. W. Morris Colles of the Inner Temple. There are histories of progress and advancement; there are contrasts; but there has not been offered anywhere, a picture of life, manners, and society as it was fifty years ago. [circa 1835] Meantime remember this. As nearly as possible, fifty years ago, the eighteenth century passed away. it died slowly; its end was hardly marked. King William the Fourth is dead. Alas! how many things were dying with that good old king. The steam-whistle was already heard across the fields: already in mid-ocean the great steamers were crossing against wind and tide: already the nations were slowly beginning to know each other: Privilege, Patronage, and the Power of Rank were beginning already to tremble, and were afraid: already the working man was heard demanding his vote: the nineteenth century had begun, We who have lived in it; we who are full of ideas; we who are all swept along with the full stream of it - we know not, we cannot see, whither it is carrying us." .

FROM THE PUBLISHER - A collection of four stories about love, obsession, and disillusionment, My First Loves is banned in the author’s native Czechoslovakia, as are all his works. Each of these sensuous and lyrical stories portrays a different stage in the young narrator’s emotional life, while at the same time revealing the profound political and social changes in Czechoslovakia since the Second World War. As the narrator travels from a difficult childhood in a Czech ghetto through student days under a Communist regime and finally into the young adulthood of an aspiring writer, the women who capture his imagination and awaken his desire are inextricably linked to the ideas that obsess him. ‘Miriam,’ the story of a young girl in a ghetto soup kitchen who secretly gives the narrator more than his allotted share of precious milk, opens with a description of the stolen food at his aunt’s engagement party and closes with that aunt and her new husband being sent to a concentration camp. In ‘The Truth Game,’ the hero wrestles with a duplicitous Communist Party, while remaining emotionally entangled with an exciting woman who lies to him constantly, unpredictably, and for no apparent reason. Inaccessibility fuels the young man’s passion - a tightrope walker is his ultimate symbol of desire - but in the end he can’t avoid the dangerous reality of adult, reciprocated love. An immensely appealing collection of stories with a quirky sense of humor and a light touch when evoking even the most intimate feelings of coming of age, MY FIRST LOVES introduces an original and important voice in contemporary Eastern European fiction. Ivan Klima was born in 1931 in Prague, where he now lives. He was the editor of the leading Czech literary weekly, Literarni listy, until the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia and the banning of that paper. In 1969 he was a visiting professor at the University of Michigan, returning home in 1970 to find himself one of the many Czech writers ‘on the index,’ prevented from publishing his work in the State-run publishing houses and official media. The author of novels, plays, and collections of short stories, Klima writes for the thriving Prague samizdat, which circulates typescript copies of banned authors’ works to Czech readers. He has been published in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Holland, Norway, and Sweden, and two of his books, A SHIP NAMED HOPE and MY MERRY MORNINGS, have appeared in England. MY FIRST LOVES is Klima’s first book to be published in the United States. Ivan Klíma (born 14 September 1931, Prague, born as Ivan Kauders) is a Czech novelist and playwright. He has received the Magnesia Litera Award and the Franz Kafka Prize, among other honors. Klíma's early childhood in Prague was happy and uneventful, but this all changed with the German invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1938, after the Munich Agreement. He had been unaware that both his parents had Jewish ancestry; neither were observant Jews, but this was immaterial to the Germans. In November 1941, first his father Vilém Klíma, and then in December, he and his mother and brother were ordered to leave for the concentration camp at Theriesenstadt (Terezín), where he was to remain until liberation by the Russian Liberation Army in May, 1945. Both he and his parents survived incarceration—a miracle at that time—Terezín was a holding camp for Jews from central and southern Europe, and was regularly cleared of its overcrowded population by transports to ‘the East’, death camps such as Auschwitz. Klíma has written graphically of this period in articles in the UK literary magazine, Granta, particularly A Childhood in Terezin. It was while living in these extreme conditions that he says he first experienced ‘the liberating power that writing can give’, after reading a school essay to his class. He was also in the midst of a story-telling community, pressed together under remarkable circumstances where death was ever-present. Children were quartered with their mothers, where he was exposed to a rich verbal culture of song and anecdote. This remarkable and unusual background was not the end of the Klíma's introduction to the great historical forces that shaped mid-century Europe. With liberation came the rise of the Czech Communist regime, and the replacement of Nazi tyranny with proxy Soviet control of the inter-war Czech democratic experiment. Klima became a member of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia. Later, his childhood hopes of fairy tale triumphs of good over evil became an adult awareness that it was often ‘not the forces of good and evil that do battle with each other, but merely two different evils, in competition for the control of the world’. The early show trials and murders of those who opposed the new regime had already begun, and Klíma's father was again imprisoned, this time by his own countrymen. It is this dark background that is the crucible out of which Klíma's written material was shaped: the knowledge of the depths of human cruelty, along with a private need for personal integrity, the struggle of the individual to keep whatever personal values the totalitarian regimes he lived under were attempting to obliterate. For his writing abilities, Ivan Klíma was awarded Franz Kafka Prize in 2002 as a second recipient. His two-volume memoir Moje šílené století (‘My Crazy Century’) won the Czech literary prize, the Magnesia Litera, in the non-fiction category in 2010.

Excerpt: . . . of burning oil or chemicals, or any other cause, the fire becomes uncontrollable and assumes the aspect of a conflagration. The journalist should be on the alert to seize upon such occurrences to add graphic interest and value to his story, giving the details in full in the first part of his report, when he will find that they will be emphasized in the headlines by the city editor or copy reader. Several years ago the thrilling exploit of Chief Egan of the Boston Fire Department, in effecting his escape from a burning building by means of a slender telegraph wire, was considered by the Boston press to be worth columns of forcible, dramatic writing. Every detail of his perilous journey from the roof to the centre of the street, where he hung high over the heads of the awestricken multitude, and from which dangerous position he was released only through much difficulty and when almost exhausted, was vividly described. It is such incidents as this that test the perceptive and descriptive powers of the wideawake reporter to their utmost. The work is not without danger. Armed with a fire badge, the journalist is free to enter the fire lines, interview the police, the firemen, the owners of the property and others concerned, and view the destruction at close range. In his devotion to his profession and zeal for the particular paper he represents he often takes his life into his hands, and the records of the press contain at least one instance of a reporter who perished in the line of duty at a fire. In many large newspaper offices each reporter is responsible only for fires rung in from the boxes of a particular district. As the number comes in on the tapper, which is an important adjunct of every metropolitan local room, the reporter whose territory. . .
