Praise

“Chatwin at his most erudite and evocative.”–Robert Stone, The New York Times Book Review

Utz wonderfully depicts that sad, romantic city of Prague, the ham-handedness of East European politics, a small gallery of deftly drawn characters. Chatwin’s deepening portrait of Utz is cunningly achieved. . . . It is triumphant.” The Washington Post

“Chatwin’s Prague is a palpable place. . . . The modeling is deft, the color bright, and the miniature scale of the piece displays a decorative mantelpiece charm.”
The Boston Globe

“Bruce Chatwin has set a story as delicate as the skyline. . . . In this mordant and suggestive story, he masters the grace, the damp, the dilapidation and the ghostly comedy of the city that produced Kafka and The Good Solider Schweik, The Golem and Don Giovanni, and the inflamed reasonableness of spring, 1968.” Los Angeles Times
