By turns defiant, paranoid, brooding, absurd and knock-down funny, TUND, from Prague-based writer Thor Garcia, is a startling creation. Peopled by a galaxy of fringe operators and hoodlums, tattered no-hopers and doom-drenched true believers, sadistic children and tormented hooch hounds, TUND is a swirling landscape of meltdowns, terrifying visions and punch-drunk epiphanies. Brimming with riotous panache, anarchic soul and sinewy, exultant writing, TUND probes the desolation and cruelties, desperation and contradictions, the hazards and hoopla, of life in an unstable and emotionally crippled age. The English-language Prague Post newspaper said of TUND: "Free-wheeling, word-slinging, experiential and accessible."
(The paper edition of TUND was published by Litteraria Pragensia Books, an independent imprint published in cooperation with the Centre for Critical and Cultural Theory at Charles University, Prague.)
