Burying the Season
An affectionate, multi-layered account of small town life in central Europe beginning in the 1930s and ending in the early 21st century. Adapting scenes from Fellini's Amarcord, Bajaja's meandering narrative weaves humor, tragedy, and historical events into a series of compelling nostalgic anecdotes. In addition to English, Bajaja's work has been published in Russian, Hungarian, Bulgarian, and Slovene. In 2004, he won the Magnesia Litera Prize for prose and he was awarded the Czech State Prize for Literature in 2010.
