the swell season

The Swell SeasonSunt certim denique fines.

I wish I knew Latin. “All things must come to an end.”

I just finished reading The Swell Season by Josef Škvorecký. It wasn’t really my style, but I did relate to the main character. It took me 8 months to finish because it has been lost for the past 6 lol.. At least I finished it. I would recommend it to musical males. Very humorous how desperate the main character gets throughout the book, chasing after crazy Czech women.

“Six tales which trace the libidinous ardours of a young man in wartime Czechoslovakia. His fantasies obstinately refuse to become reality, and in a world of unyielding girls and ruthless Nazi invaders, jazz is his only solace.”

  1. I didn’t realize the band The Swell Season was named after anything…but they definitely are! She’s Czech and he’s Irish and obvs they’re musicians.
