Set in the near-distant future, Spaceman of Bohemia follows a Czech astronaut as he launches into space to investigate a mysterious dust cloud covering Venus, a suicide mission sponsored by a proud nation.
Suddenly a world celebrity, Jakub's marriage starts to fail as the weeks go by, and his sanity comes into question. After his mission is derailed, he must make a violent decision that will force him to come to terms with his family's dark political past. An extraordinary vision of the endless human capacity to persist - and risk everything - in the name of love and home.
"An incredible experience.... I can honestly say I loved every page. Every sentence. Spaceman of Bohemia is unforgettable: a work of breathtaking scope and heart, and a reflection of humanity that's raw and strange and profound and true." (Lisa McInerney, Baileys Prize-winning author of The Glorious Heresies)
