Read full description of the books Audience:The problem with books that try to portrait reality in quite precise, naturalistic manner is that reality is stupid and boring so quite naturaly plays (or books in general) then looks stupid and boring too.
Some people find some sort of wierd satisfaction in reading something that mirrors their bitter view on some parts in their lives (for example boss-emloyee relationship) but I am not into that sort of stuff.
As for that "briliant ironical situation when he is asked to report on himself" I am afraid that I see no interesting irony in bargain that benefits everyone. One-paragraph summary from a textbooks on literature is almost as good as reading the whole thing.
Read information about the authorVáclav Havel was a Czech playwright, essayist, poet, dissident and politician. He was the tenth and last President of Czechoslovakia (1989–92) and the first President of the Czech Republic (1993–2003). He wrote over twenty plays and numerous non-fiction works, translated internationally. He received the US Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Philadelphia Liberty Medal, the Order of Canada, the freedom medal of the Four Freedoms Award, and the Ambassador of Conscience Award. He was also voted 4th in Prospect Magazine's 2005 global poll of the world's top 100 intellectuals. He was a founding signatory of the Prague Declaration on European Conscience and Communism.
Beginning in the 1960s, his work turned to focus on the politics of Czechoslovakia. After the Prague Spring, he became increasingly active. In 1977, his involvement with the human rights manifesto Charter 77 brought him international fame as the leader of the opposition in Czechoslovakia; it also led to his imprisonment. The 1989 "Velvet Revolution" launched Havel into the presidency. In this role he led Czechoslovakia and later the Czech Republic to multi-party democracy. His thirteen years in office saw radical change in his nation, including its split with Slovakia, which Havel opposed, its accession into NATO and start of the negotiations for membership in the European Union, which was attained in 2004.
