In Richard Fidler’s love letter to the city of Prague, The Golden Maze: A Biography of Prague, he describes it as a city “written in pencil, erased, rewritten and erased again... a fabulous palimpsest of stories.” Richard interweaves his own visits, experiences and impressions of Prague with its broader history, giving us a brilliant living portrait of a city of fairy tales, violent crusades and dark secrets. His passion and love for the city infuse the pages of a book that captures its very essence.
