3 SKVORECKY, Josef. WILSON, Paul, trans. Return of Lieutenant Boruvka : A Reactionary Tale of Crime and Detection. First Edition in dustjacket
W.W. Norton & Co., New York, 1991, 
SKVORECKY, Josef. The Return of Lieutenant Boruvka : A Reactionary Tale of Crime and Detection. Translated and adapted by Paul Wilson. New York / London: W.W. Norton & Company, (1991). First US Printing. Pp. (8),[9]-159,(1). 8vo, black cloth spine with purple paper covered boards, purple lettering to spine. "Things looked very black fro Lieutenant Boruvka in 'The End of Lieutenant Boruvka'. Butin this, the fourth and (perhaps) final volume in theseries, the sad-eyed detective turns up again, this time in Canada. Boruvk a is working as a parking-lot attendant in downtown Toronto, after a spectacular escape from a Czech prison which provoked an international scandal, when a young woman is murdered, perhaps in a spy coverup. Boruvka lends his years of experience and hard-won pessimism to the neophyte Canadians on thecase (including his daughter, who works for a feminist detective agency). By having this story -- his most riveting and funniest yet -- narrated by the murdered woman's brother, an amiable WASP, Josef Skvorecky sets the Old World against the New, and pokes fun at the absurdities on both sides of our cultural divide. In the end, as an old war crime is avenged, the narratordiscovers the source of Lieutenant Boruvka's mournful demeanour." -from th e dustjacket. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 20.00
