Prague for Beginners: Finding Myself in Prague

Prague, Czech Republic, May 17, ILIP –Prague for Beginners takes readers on a tour of 1994 Prague as seen through the eyes of American Elizabeth Logan, who’s come to teach English. The 1989 collapse of Communism launched the Czech Republic (then Czechoslovakia) and its capital city, Prague, like a rocket into the bigger world. Those who weren’t there for the adventure can scarcely conceive of the energy unleashed by the Czechs’ new freedoms and the tremendous revitalization of the 1200-year-old city.
Elizabeth arrives in Prague on the second wave of expats. The city is already well into its very rapid and thorough changes, leaving Elizabeth feeling a bit behind the curve. What had been old and charmingly inefficient was becoming just like what you’d find in any European city, but still, the quirkiness and hidden corners of Prague enchant Elizabeth. She makes new friends, loses her flat and her job, falls in love, and steers her life in a brand-new direction in the course of one year.
Her Czech friend Marek supplies Elizabeth with historical and cultural background and insights that are woven into the book’s narrative. Her impressions of the city and the people she meets supply the reader with a deeply moving image of 1994 Prague in all its beauty and mystery. Elizabeth finds herself in Prague, and the reader is rewarded with a portrait of a place that endures in her memories.
