Sample text

Then suddenly these murmurings and rustlings took on shape: they were the breathing of a man long dead. Of a man who, during his life-time, had written letters by the hundred, had painted, drawn and engraved, had written books. Dazzling books, for this man, a sower and engraver of signs, was a seer. He was an unobtrusive man, puny with great eyes and a restless heart. He was killed by a bullet in the back, in broad daylight; he fell without making the slightest noise. He was so light, so vulnerable.

By a little boy who never became a man, but was consigned to ashes, wind, the grave and oblivion. The breeze murmured this oblivion, lingered upon it. The body of the giant-woman had dissolved into the shadow, into the smell of the lilac, into the softness of the evening. The body of the giant-woman had faded away, carried off by the breeze; becoming one with it. The body of the giant-woman floated on the evening air. The voice of the long-dead child as pretty as an unfolding rosebud climbed wandering along the streets.

Bohuslav Reynek The first time she appeared was on an autumn evening, in an alleyway in the old town. A fine rain was falling. The bitter smell of must and rotten wood from the old scaffolding, abandoned along the houses, mingled with the smell of the fog. In Prague, from the end of autumn and throughout the winter, the mist has a smell, and even a texture. Some evenings it is almost palpable, it is so thick and yellowish. The smoke from the city swells and colours the mist, the lignite dust floats in the air with a bitter-sweet taste.
