Jan Drabek, author of seventeen books, turns his cutting wit on the world of diplomacy. In Grungia, Czech born umbrella salesman Bartolomej Kobylka leaves his thriving business in Washington state to teach English in Prague, only to be conscripted into an ambassadorial role by a post cold war regime desperate for any talent untainted by its communist past. What ensues is a three year stint for Bart and his glib wife Ginny in the African republic of Grungia. There, an inexperienced and incredulous Bart finesses his way through diplomatic quagmires and exposes corrupt, incompetent and sometimes imbecilic personages for what they really are... corrupt and incompetent imbeciles. Grungia is an uplifting satire on many levels targeting the post-Communist landscape, Third World mentalities, and diplomatic foibles, but above all human relationships. Hilarious! Keywords: diplomacy, diplomat, ambassador, Africa, Czech, Czechoslovakia, memoir, communism, fall of communism, satire
