The author took part in a panel discussion in November that was organized by the Adalbert Stifter Association in Munich. The discussion was conducted in German and took place without an audience. In a conversation about his novels Neptune’s Cave and The Praise of Opportunism, Marek Toman emphasized the close connection between history and the present, one of his favourite literary themes. The event is available on youtube under the name Mitteleuropäisches Erbe in der tschechischen Gegenwartsliteratur (Central European Heritage in Contemporary Czech Literature).
