Paul BermanVaclav Havel's To the Castle and Back is an artful, sly and touching self-portrait, cleverly and neurotically disguised as an artless heap of dry scribbled notes and wastebasket throwaways. In a preface to the English edition, Havel nearly advises us not to read the book at all. "If you occasionally feel like putting the book aside because it seems to skirt some of the world-shaking events that I lived through…I urge you to skip ahead." But don't listen to him.
—The New York Times
