Rudolf Sloboda's first novel written and published after the Velvet Revolution. In Blood (1991), the author uses a backdrop of memories from the past years to depict the events that had led to the protests of November 1989. The novel - just like Sloboda's other books - is basically built upon his own life experiences. A bold narrative style is another characteristic of his prose. The main motifs of the book rest on love, jealousy, eroticism, sexual relations as well as on loneliness and searching for the meaning of life.
