In the title novella, a third-rate American playwright named Landau attends a literary conference in Prague, where an organized group excursion to a former concentration camp degenerates into a battle of wills and an exercise in egomania and public humiliation. Nina, the heroine of the second novella, "Three Pigs in Five Days," is sent to Paris to write an article for her lover's travel journal - a dizzying, erotic pilgrimage that forces her to see how sex has distorted her view of the world.

Prefer Nina to Landau and either to Jiri and Leo
For me, the narrator has the right wry ironic dry tone, but he seems to sympathize more with Nina than Landau. My favorite moment: a Frenchwoman who sounds more like Dr Ruth Westheimer!!
