This is Ditie’s epic tale, full of dream-like descriptions and rather bizarre characters. He’s a lowly waiter whom we meet in a posh Prague hotel before WWII. As the war is about to begin, he falls in love with a Nazi gym teacher who takes him on new, misaligned adventures. I hated this book in the beginning, but that changed around page 100. I persevered only because it was a book-club pick. But I was happy that I finished it.
