Magnesia Litera for Radek Malý

Radek Malý won the most prestigious Czech literary award for his collection of poems, The Postman Wind. The book, illustrated by Pavel Čech, was published by Albatros last spring. Iva Procházková’s novel for young adults, Knots and Oranges (also published by Albatros), made it to the finale as well.

The Postman Wind

Synopsis: Radek Malý, one of the most respected young Czech poets, has teamed up with the award-winning illustrator Pavel Čech to create a moving, dreamlike book of children’s poetry about autumn. Evoking the gentle breeze of autumn and the subtle dance of falling leaves, the book cannot fail to charm readers of any age. Radek Malý’s poems are both playful and somber, merry and nostalgic, and, above all, highly touching and original.
