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, but there is still enough of quirkiness and hidden corners in Prague to enchant Elizabeth.
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.
