Praise

“Brian Kimberling’s brisk, funny novel [is] set approximately 10 years after Czech independence, when Westernization had turned the country into a confused and unwholesome stew of capitalism and communism . . . The writing is smart, the quips are amusing . . . The story exudes . . . raffish charm.”
—Sam Sacks, The Wall Street Journal

Goulash by Brian Kimberling entertained me so much . . . Kimberling, who lived the expat nightmare, has a droll, quirky take on the scene . . . Goulash made me want another serving.”
Bethanne Patrick, Lit Hub

“A quirky, funny, melancholy portrait of a significant European moment, captured by this most subtle of Americans abroad.”
—Tessa Hadley, author of The Past and Late in the Day
 
Goulash is a hilarious novel about a man’s quest for a home in a place full of challenges and lots of beer—Prague, 1998. Wonderful dialogue, endearing characters, and a deep sense of the historical forces at work combine in all the best ways to make this story really delectable.”
—Jessica Francis Kane, author of This Close and The Report 

“A vivid picture of a city creaking and shuddering as it settles into a new dispensation . . . This novel is quick to read, but its compelling pictures and insights will linger in the mind.”
—Claire Hopley, The Washington Times

“A winning, offbeat yarn about life and love after communism.”
Kirkus Reviews
 
“Kimberling . . . is an exacting wordsmith capable of elegantly simple sentences, and his narrator’s observations are often dryly hilarious . . . A remarkable evocation of time and place.”
