Monika Zgustová: Goya’s Glass
Threee extraordinary women in three centuries: The Duchess of Alba, known as Goya’s muse, in times of Inquisition, the Czech writer Bozena Nemcova, member of the national Enlightenment movement in Austro-Hungary, and the Russian writer Nina Berberova who escapes persecution during the Russian Revolution.

Zgustova has published seven books, including novels, short stories, a play, and a biography. In 2004, she published biography of Bohumil Hrabal. Her translations from the Czech into both Spanish and Catalan, which include ten works by Bohumil Hrabal, Václav Havel, Jaroslav Hasek and Milan Kundera, have made her a key figure in the introduction of major Czech 20th century fiction into Spain. Zgustova received the Gratias Agit Prize from the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
