Letters to Olga
Vaclav Havel was one of the most important European writers of our time. In 1979 he was sentenced to four and a half years of hard labour for his involvement in the Czech human rights movement, Charter 77. In prison he was allowed to write to his wife, Olga, once a week. He used the opportunity for profound reflections, on theatre, society and philosophy. These letters form a remarkable document, and a work of lasting value.
'From Havel, we learn that the true heroes of our time are those who stay the course.' Bruce Chatwin
