'Listen, vejk, are you really God's prize oaf?'
'Humbly report, sir,' vejk answered solemnly. 'I am!'

The chaotic, hilarious adventures of an ordinary soldier, who is either genuinely a total idiot or a genius pretending to be one - perhaps the greatest book to come out of the First World War, as vejk tries with endless ingenuity to avoid getting to the trenches

Jaroslav Hasek, Cecil Parrott (Translator)

About the Author

Jaroslav Hasek (1883-1923) wrote more than 2,000 short works, short stories, glosses, sketches, mostly under various pen-names. A prankster and stalwart of innumerable taverns scattered across Bohemia, Hasek was drafted into the Austro-Hungarian army during the First World War and spent much of the war in a Russian prisoner-of-war camp. After the war Hasek launched into writing his devastating and hilarious satire The Good Soldier Svejk, which was tragically left unfinished at his premature death and yet was, by various measures, probably unfinishable.
