Waiting for the Dark, Waiting for the Light is the story of Pavel, once a promising, award-winning documentary filmmaker, forced to survive under communism by working as a cameraman for the state-run television station.

«غریبه‌ها به آن‌ها تنقلات تعارف می‌کردند، و آن‌ها صمیمیت خاصی را احساس کردند که از نومیدی آن لحظه بالایشان می‌کشید. آن شب، قدم‌زنان او را به خانه‌اش رساندند. او در خوابگاه محوطه‌ بیمارستانی که در آن کار می‌کرد زندگی می‌کرد. هردوشان او را بوسیدند و با او خداحافظی کردند. آن بوسه هیچ معنایی نداشت. با این همه، آن بوسه و خود او به یادش ماندند. از قیافه و شخصیت او خوشش می‌آمد. در رفتارش صداقت مهربانانه‌ای بود، اما در زیر آن، اعماق پنهان نفوذناپذیری را احساس کرد که به طرف او جلبش می‌کردند.
آن‌ها مدتی با هم بیرون می‌رفتند، و او فکر می‌کرد که همان‌قدر که او را دوست دارد، او هم دوستش می‌دارد. از این بابت مطمئن بود تا این‌که اتفاقی افتاد که، در آن زمان، به نظر خودش نقطه عطف کم‌اهمیت‌تری می‌آمد تا به نظر او. حالا ترجیح می‌داد به یادش نیاورد.»

What is it with Czech authors, so far I’ve disliked or been totally indifferent to their books. Is it the translation or is their experience of communism too insular for me to relate to? Anyway Waiting for the Dark, Waiting for the Light falls into the indifferent category. As such I read the book and didn’t mind it but it did not make me fall out of my chair in amazement or anything like that.

Pavel is a cameraman who has ventured into documentaries, however, since this is 1989 Prague censorship is the main order of the day and Pavel’s is encountering problems with is artistic visions. To make matters worse he’s in love with someone who does not respect and is losing is love for life.

Finally political change does occur and Pavel cannot cope with it and is stuck.

When I finished the book I just shrugged my shoulders saying ‘ok not too bad’ but that’s it.

I think this book would have garnered a higher rating had I read it earlier on on the grand book mission. Its the take of a film maker on the Velvet Revolution in the Czech Republic - the persecution of the past, the struggle to cope with the freedoms of the future. But more than that, its the story of yet another discontent artistic man, approaching middle age and struggling to see the meaning of his life, and where he fits in to modern society. Interwoven are the tales of criminals, factory workers, presidents and fiction, which is accomplished in quite a fine manner. Ultimately however, the book failed to really grip me at any point, and it took a while to get through a relatively short read.

A clever examination of constraints; those imposed by society and those we place upon ourselves, all in the context of the Velvet Revolution circa 1990. A film maker who has worked for the regime and actualized himself only through a fantasy screenplay, now suddenly outdated, discovers that the new state does not make life easier. Klima’s use of sudden transitions between reality and daydream, and slower transitions between reality and apparent fantasy, mimics the sudden transitions (light and dark) in the politics of the day, and the slower transitions in narrative film. And everywhere there is both incompletely suppressed paranoia and bizarre imagery, as in most post-Kafka Czech writing of note.

Ivan Klimas book @Waiting for the Dark, Waiting for the Light@ was a really interesting look at the fallout from the fall of the Communist regime in Prague.

Set in the days before and after the Velvet Revolution, its narrator, Pavel, is going through a midlife crisis of sorts. He lives in a world where there are few choices and then too many-- either way he is completely stuck and unsure of where he is going.

Pavel has a rich fantasy life that really bleeds into the story... it was difficult to keep what was supposed to be true and what was supposed to be fantasy straight.

Overall, it was an interesting and thought-provoking book, but hard to follow in places.

Theres the old adage about how the worst thing about communism is what comes after, and I suppose thats what Ivan Klima is going for. Mostly, he focuses on how a guy living on the fringes of Pragues media landscape with dreams of big projects spends his time during the twilight years of Bolshevism compromising, and then spends the first few years of the Havel era... compromising. That was all interesting enough, but the narrative interlaced throughout -- the paranoias of the unnamed leader, presumably Secretary-General Husak, inside Kafkas own castle -- were absolutely fantastic.
