1. LIFE WITH A STAR
2. MENDELSOHN IS ON THE ROOF

Both novels are by Jiri Weil, and take place in Prague.

The novel "Prague" is actually about Budapest in the early 90s. Interesting book - some of it is brilliant and funny, some parts drag a bit - but great descriptions of Budapest. Also really captures the feel of Eastern Europe right after the Velvet Revolution and its counterparts, and the influx of Americans looking for the equivalent of Paris in the 20s.

Thanks, All.

I've read Unbearable Lightness of Being and the Kafkas, but not the other recommendations.
