Mark Slouka’s novel begins with the child of Czech immigrants to the US, now living in New York, who has been brought up on the folklore of his parents’ homeland. As he grows up he becomes aware that he has never been told what his parents did during the Nazi occupation of Prague. As an adult he makes a journey back to Czechoslovakia and it is only then that he discovers their part in the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, the notorious ‘butcher of Prague’ and begins to understand his mother Ivana’s unhappiness. Intertwined with this gripping history is a passionate love story, the tragic consequences of which transcend both years and continents.

1942: A Novel

By the time they left…

As they crossed the open ground…

It was Svicka who stopped him.

He was looking down the road…

On one level…

They walked all that afternoon…

As they rode up the grassy path…

Night, night.

The fire was small…

On June 5 1942…

He joined them…

She understood, and she didn't.

In another time…

He could see the problem immediately…

He was back in Manchester…

On the fourth night it rained.

That night it rained…

It was on the fifth day…

He didn't talk about it…

On June 8…

Sitting at the kitchen table…

That same afternoon…

In any case…

He and Opalka were the last to leave.

He could see them there…

'We must thank God...'

There were no rages…

The mornings on the tram…

They'd talked endlessly.

My father heard about her occasionally…

It was a peculiar game.

After Lidice, time changed for Bem.

She sensed it immediately…

By seven they had made their way back…

It would take time…

It was raining the morning he packed…

He'd been trying to read…

One night when I was five or six…
