Let's talk about I Served The King Of England by Bohumil Hrabal.
Sparkling with comic genius and narrative exuberance, I Served the King of England is a story of how the unbelievable came true. Its remarkable hero, Ditie, is a hotel waiter who rises to become a millionaire and then loses it all again against the backdrop of events in Prague from the German invasion to the victory of Communism. Ditie's fantastic journey intertwines the political and the personal in a narrative that both enlightens and entertains.

What we're about

Reading contemporary, classic, and literary fiction in different genres and from different cultures, we meet once a month at the Butcher's Arms in Headington. Active members suggest books, and shortlists are narrowed down by group poll. It's a welcoming and mellow group, but not without lively discussion. You don't have to live in Headington . . .
