Travelers' Tales: Prague and the Czech Republic

"This little mother has claws," writes Franz Kafka of the allure of Prague, his hometown. The same can be said of this collection of true stories, the latest from the Travelers' Tales series that attempts to paint a portrait of a country through the experiences of many visitors. The forty authors—ranging from professional scribes to a former super-model—write their personal impressions in sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, sometimes nostalgic voices about their very intimate relationship with the city that inspired Mozart’s music. Whether they picturesquely describe wandering Kafka’s cobblestone streets in search of the Castle, or learning English in a Czech brothel, the tales uniquely entertain and inform. Warning: This is not your father's travel book. While many feature a Czech pronunciation guide, what other travel publication offers a chapter titled Prague’s Vomiting Multitude?
