The texts assembled in this collection have never previously been published and are usually referred to as juvenilia. However, they are not mere youthful efforts or the first uncertain steps of a great author: in short stories, short sketches and diary entries, Juráček comes across as masterful, a “ready” and “complete” writer.

Prostřednictvím kočky is being published as the first volume of the Works of Pavel Juráček.
