Overview

Pink Tanks and Velvet Hangovers: An American in Prague, by Douglas Lytle, is a travel book that takes place in the months following the fall of the repressive Socialist government in Czechoslovakia. From the vantage point of an American journalist who went to Prague with his Czech girlfriend, Lytle documents the first shaky steps to democracy and capitalism, including the 1992 division of the country into the Czech Republic and Slovakia. He writes of the awkwardness and slights of a country in transition, the sights, smells, and incredible beauty he witnesses, and of a people and a government on the cusp of massive change.
