The Quest for the Golden Fish (1985)
Fiction for adults
Sixty-Eight Publishers

Twenty-five-year-old Leos partly loses his memory following a serious road accident. This memory loss makes him a stranger in his own life. Little by little he tries to recover recent events from his life, but often he isn’t able to do this in a fully adequate way. The novel, whose narrator is Leos, arouses strong emotions. This is Prochazkova’s first novel for adults.
