Proměny (Transformations)

Věra Nosková, 2013

The political upheaval in 1989 deeply transforms the lives of people. The novel tells about the shy woman, Annette, who is married to a drunk and works as night governess to earn her meager living. Her secret hobby and only joy is photography. Then, the political change comes and an unexpected freedom opens. Annette then becomes a recognised photojournalist. With her new found self-confidence, she gains the courage to divorce her alcoholic husband. The fates of all the people around Annette change, but not always for the better. A novelistic study on society.
