Jacob Putnam arrived in Prague in October 1990, just months after the Velvet Revolution had secured Czechoslovakia's democracy. Living among fellow expatriates in these heady times, he shared their hopes, their speculations, and sometimes their heartbreaks. This debut novel by New York Review of Books regular Caleb Crain captures the excitement and uncertainty of a young gay college graduate testing his own freedoms in a time of great flux. A coming-of-age novel adroitly knit into a larger social setting; certain to be widely reviewed and discussed.
