The Opportune Moment, 1855

by Patrik Ouředník (2011, Dalkey Archive Press)

“A treasure of historical and imaginative detail converge in this fascinating work about a group of disenchanted Europeans who travel to Brazil in the mid-19th century to start a utopian society.”



“For the author of Europeana, the journey is also an opportunity to examine different European nationalities close up, and this time it is far more entertaining.”
— Anna Aslanyan, 3:AM Magazine


“Once again we tip our proverbial hats to the estimable Dalkey Archive Press for bringing us a fascinating work of European fiction that would otherwise almost certainly be unknown to the US reading public.”
