by Oto Pavel

How I Came to Know Fish by Oto Pavel How I Came to Know Fish (1974) is Ota Pavel's magical memoir of his childhood in Czechoslovakia.
Fishing with his father and his Uncle Prosek - the two finest fishermen in the world - he takes a peaceful pleasure from the rivers and ponds of his country. But when the Nazis invade, his father and two older brothers are sent to concentration camps and Pavel must steal their confiscated fish back from under the noses of the SS to feed his family.
