Ivan Klima occupies a vaunted spot on the roster of great modern Czech writers. Under communism, Klima and his contemporaries, including Vaclav Havel and Milan Kundera, secretly shaped cultural and political thought, even as police purged eastern Europe of intellectuals. But the repression Klima lived through helped shape his body of work to come. Now the 82-year-old author looks back on his journey in his new memoir, “My Crazy Century.” We sit down with Klima to explore his life, his literature and the lessons he’s learned.
