British author Nigel Peace publishes powerful love-story set against the backdrop of 1968 invasion

British author Nigel Peace has just published a powerful love story set
against the background of the 1968 invasion of Czechoslovakia by the Warsaw
Pact. The novel is based on the author’s own personal experience of being
torn apart from his first love by the communist regime. I spoke to Nigel
Peace shortly before his new book came out, about his memories of the time
and what made him write his soul-searching novel half a century later.
