The Story Recalls The Tumult In The Countryside During The 1950s Collectivization Of Agriculture, Sheds Light Upon The Torn Social Fabric In The Decades To Follow, And Characterizes How Czech People Of All Generations Struggle To Come To Grips With The Unresolved Remnants Of Their Past In The Years Since Totalitarian Communists Were Driven From Power In 1989. The Story Combines Drama And Mystery With History, Architecture And A Little Romance Against A Background That Is The Natural Beauty Of Southern Bohemia. The Characters Struggle To Resolve Their Feelings Of Guilt, Thirst For Revenge And Desire To Forgive. In The Original Czech, Rustic Baroque (Selsky Baroko) Was Awarded The Magnesia Litera Prize As The Best Czech Novel For 2005.

Indeed, In Combination With The Czech Language Original (published By Host ) Rustic Baroque Makes An Excellent Reader For Those Who Are Learning Czech Or For Czech Speakers Wishing To Improve Their English. "For Me, Personally, It Seems Not So Much That This Author Weaves Tales For Us Of South Bohemia, But, Rather, I Perceive That South Bohemia Divulges Its Stories To Us Through Jiri Hajicek's Capable Hands." - From The Translator's Introduction "Hajicek ... Has Successfully Discovered An Extraordinary Technique For Portraying Traditional Subject Matter. The Result Is Prose Written With Exceptional Feeling For The Poetry Of The Countryside, Observed From A Historical Perspective While Commingling The Present With The Past." - Ales Haman, Lidove Noviny (on The Czech Original)
