Skvorecky, Josef, 1924-. A Historical Foreword. and a Note on the Characters.

Skvorecky, Josef, 1924-. Translation of Nevesta z Texasu. eISBN: 978-0-307-36415-9.

From the widely acclaimed author of Dvorak in Love and The Engineer of Human Souls comes an unusual Civil War novel based on the documented memories of Czech soldiers who fought for the Union in the 26th Wisconsin battalion under General William Tecumseh Sherman. Girls, jazz, politics, the golden dreams and black comedy of youth-these are the compelling ingredients of The Cowards. May 1945, a small town in Czechoslovakia.

The Bride of Texas book. On closer examination, however, Skvorecky's choice of subject matter in his novel The Bride of Texas makes a great deal of sense: he has spent his career struggling with problems of nationalism, totalitarianism, and the crushing effects of history on the individ Josef Skvorecky, as a Czech émigré and Canadian citizen, seems an unlikely chronicler of the American Civil War.
