Milan, a cynical ex-professor of psychology, escaped from the bleak Czechoslovakia of the 1960's to become a Hollywood psychiatrist to the stars. The Prague he knew fades into memory, and with the end of the Cold War seems to disappear altogether. But when he returns years later to film an Arthurian legend, the past is waiting. Stasi agents, abandoned castles, and ugly visions of a fascist Europe plague Milan, and he finds himself imprisoned for a grisly murder he didn't commit. Jailed once again in the land of his birth, Milan turns to a pig, his prison companion, to tell his story. Savage and humorous, In a Pig's Ear is a harrowing inquiry into the mystery of identity.

Paul Bryers was born in Liverpool and worked as a history teacher before becoming a journalist and filmmaker. He has written many novels and screenplays. He lives in London, England.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing This is one of the best novels I have ever read. Although it has not received much acclaim, I feel that it deserves recognition. This story is weaved in a manner that grabs the reader from the beginning. I know that I was enthralled by the characters' unique personalities almost immediately, and the story is one full of shock, humour and despair. It is an excellent book and to buy it would be money well spent.
