Slovak Authors Part of the London Literary Map

The map of European Literary London is now online and it features works by Slovak authors. 

At the start of the new university term in the UK with most teaching done online, University College London decided to welcome incoming students to London with an interactive map of London sites, which appear or are described in works by European writers or artists. Slovak literature scholars Ivana Taranenková, Charles Sabatos, Radoslav Passia and Peter Darovec helped identify works by Slovak writers that are set in London and the map of European Literary London is now online, featuring samples from works by three Slovak writers associated with London localities, translated by Julia and Peter Sherwood. They are Gejza Vámoš (Hyde Park Corner): an excerpt from the short story "Jim z Hyde Parku" (Jim from Hyde Park), Pavel Vilikovský (Russell Square): an excerpt from Posledný kôň z Pompejí (The Last Horse of Pompeii) and Zuska Kepplová (Tate Modern): and excerpt from Buchty švabachom (Buns in Gothic Script).
