Summary
For the first ten years of her life, Jana was a simple Czech girl, her days run with grey precision by the Czechoslovakian State Security. Then the raven-haired girl Zorka appeared. Jana, now an interpreter in Paris for a Czech medical supply company, hasn't seen Zorka in a decade. Aimee is in Paris too, living under the shadow of a menacing blue cloud, mourning the death of her wife Dominique. Meanwhile, in the ether of a lesbian internet chatroom, a teenager from the American Midwest who goes by the moniker _hotgirlAmy_ plans to rescue Dominxxika_N39, a rural Czech housewife, from her tyrannical husband, a hospital bed salesmen. As Aimee and Jana's stories slowly circle through the surreal fluctuations of the past and present, they lead inexorably together, to a mysterious bar on Paris's Rue de Prague
Summary
This spellbinding story of love, loss and self-discovery follows a young girl named Zorka as she comes of age in Prague, Wisconsin and then Boston amidst a backdrop of clothing logos, MTV, computer coders and other outcast youth
