Happy 100th birthday Josef Švejk

Not much of a soldier, but still managed to rescue millions from boredom. Met you many years ago on shelf, fell in love and never looked back.

It’s 100th anniversary since famous novel by Jaroslav Hasek was written:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jarosl...ek?wprov=sfti1

It’s almost as famous in Czech literature as Shakespeare.

Great, thanks! There was a great audiobook in German which I loved listening to almost 100 years ago. Gotta find it again.

Hasek was lazy, drunk, bigamist, communist & antisemite - today he would have been cancelled immediately.

For those who didn't read The good soldier Svejk - I envy you. reading it for the first time is a memorable experience.
