Jaroslav Rudis



Jaroslav Rudiš, born 1972, is a Czech writer, screenplay author and playwright. His Grand Hotel and his graphic novel Alois Nebel have been made into films. Rudiš held the Siegfried Unseld Guest Professorship at Berlin Humboldt University. He was awarded the Usedom Literature Prize for his literary work.

Jaroslav Rudiš – probably the most interesting Czech contemporary writer for a long while – also seems in his novel (Vom Ende des Punks in Helsinki) to be fascinated by German history and contemporary affairs.
