The famous American writer Philip Roth based his book of the same name partially on his authentic experiences. In 1970’s, after the Soviet occupation of 1968, he used to visit Prague to help the banned Czechoslovak writers. Despite the political oppression, the social life in Prague was rampant, full of amusement and open relationships. The greater the pressure of the regime was, the stronger got Czechs´ desire to resort to their free private intimate worlds. The story depicts a journey of the famous American writer Nathan Zuckerman who arrives in Prague in 1976. He carries out a mission to save a unique collection of brilliant tales written in Yiddish by smuggling them across the border.
