Written by Karel Capek in 1929, Povidky z druhe kapsy is a continuation of his collection of prose on the theme of crime, but they are very unlike typical murder mysteries. Capek captures the characters of criminals and good-doers like no one else.

These finely tuned and varied vignettes established Neruda as the quintessential Czech nineteenth century realist, the Charles Dickens of a Prague becoming ever more aware of itself as a Czech, rather than an Austrian city. Prague Tales is a classic story whose influence has been acknowledged by generations of Czech writers, including Ivan Klima, who has contributed an introduction to this new translation. Less

Full of great short stories, with humorous and perceptive character studies. The English translation is excellent, making late-nineteenth century Prague come to life for this early-twenty-first century British reader!

A collection of stories by the original Neruda (not the Chilean who borrowed his name). Charming and nostalgic for a world that even then was disappearing.

Wonderful book of short stories. Loveliest stories that underscore the reason why I like books of this genre and of authors of his time and place. His writing displays the right pace and keeps apt mood that thrills the reader anytime. Words are like morning dew melting in. Read full review

I heard that Pablo Neruda the Chilean poet, called himself after Jan Neruda the Czech writer. I can understand why. These tales are full of insight and affectionate observation of the people of the Mala Strana in Prague. It was therefore no surprise to see his portrait on. Read full review

Same deal as with Capek's Tale from Two Pockets, good writer with the bias of his place and time (misogyny and Antisemitism.)

Nerudo, Nerudo. co s tebou?
Povídky zábavností i rozsahem docela různorodé, ale co od nich chtít - je to realismus. Spíš než zábavné čtení je to zajímavá sonda do života před sto padesáti roky, kdy panovaly zcela odlišné poměry. A jako výpověď působí víc než věrohodně. No. Read full review

I admit to being a little disappointed by these stories. They reminded me a little of Zola crossed with Mrs. Gaskell. The short stories were nearly all character sketches. The shortest sketches I think I liked the most. There were a few truly beautiful ones, some nice tra. Read full review

Jan Neruda is a good observer of the everyday life and he can make a profit of his gift. This collection of stories takes us to the XIXth Century Prague and show a series of very particular characters an situations. The autor has a very pointillous style, often comic, and. Read full review

There's probably too much stasis, too much pure description in this book to deserve the title "povídky" (narrations, stories), but that doesn't matter: Those images of young and old people inhabiting mid-19th-century Prague and their struggles around the great topics of l. Read full review

This collection of adapted texts by Petr Šabach from the Adapted Czech Prose series focuses on contemporary Czech storytelling. The ten selected stories are taken from the books Shit on Fire, Big Beat, Grannies, and Four Men on the Water. The texts, linked by their humorous storytelling style, feature topics such as family life, interpersonal relationships, and men’s and women’s differing views of the world. Šabach (1951) is one of today’s most widely read Czech authors. His stories have been adapted into a number of very successful films, such as Big Beat, Cosy Dens, and Pupendo. Each story in the collection is visually divided into two or more sections. The reader can answer questions before moving on to the next section and predict how the story will continue. The aim of the questions is to encourage readers to express their own thoughts on their understanding of the text, and even to start conversations during group work. The questions can of course be skipped over and the text read as a whole. – The collection is accompanied by grammar/lexical exercises for each text, a Czech/English/German/Russian glossary, and an answer key. The set includes an audio CD with complete recordings of the book. The collection is intended for Level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. i.e. for intermediate and advanced students.

(The Czech lion on the national insignia has a two-pronged tail. The imputation here is. well, think about it. This kind of joke which Czechs tell about themselves may come as a surprise to some.)
A couple of jokes are pretty old but some do show something from the Czech nature. However, if you say Czech jokes, you usually also say Jára Cimrman. Where is Jára Cimrman? Is he in Humpolec (with Hliník)? But he may not be here because as one of the expats said: You must be probably Czech to understand jokes about Jára Cimrman.
