The Last Bohemians

Idealistic American journalist Sam Seton came to Prague in the 1990s, looking for Václav Havel’s brave new civil society – capitalism with a human face.

What she found was a hedonistic culture clash of expatriates and native Bohemians rising out of the ashes of communist bureaucracy. Amongst snow-covered castles and soot-stained facades, bad food and good beer, addiction and corruption, Sam investigates a sinister conspiracy that threatens the foundations of the world’s newest country.

The Last Bohemians paints a seductive picture of Prague’s “Left Bank of the ’90s,” where desire and decadence defined the last days of the 20th century.
