Recording of the ceremonial launch of the first English language edition of the novel “Glorious Nemesis” by Ladislav Klíma, a philosopher of “extreme subjectivism”, translated by Marek Tomin and illustrated by Pavel Růt. The presentation of the book, which has been brought out by the American publishing house Twisted Spoon Press, was linked to a reading and discussion of Klíma’s broader cultural influence and context. The evening also included a screening of footage of the Plastic People of the Universe performing Glorious Nemesis in concert in 1979. It was hosted by publisher Howard Sidenberg and editor Martin Machovec.
