SKVORECKY, Josef. Dvorak in Love: A light-hearted dream. Translated from the Czech by Paul Wilson. (Toronto): Lester & Orpan Dennys, Publishers, (1986). First Printing. Pp. (10),-322,(2). 8vo, black cloth with cream lettering to spine. Lester & Orpan Dennys International Fiction List No. 34. "Splendid and many-faceted, 'Dvorak in Love' evokes the life of a great musician, and anearly forgotten piece of European and American history. At the height of his prodigious powers, in 1893, Anton Dvorak was persuaded to leave his native Bohemia to come to New York to be Director of the National Conservatory of Music. Out of this brief biographical footnote, Skvorecky has fashioned a brilliant tale: the story of the composer's lifelong love for hissister-in-law Josephine; his passion for America; and his championship of black musicians." -from the rear cover.
