Renowned ABC broadcaster Richard Fidler (appearing via live stream) talks to Geoff Hutchison about The Golden Maze, his deeply nostalgic history of Prague. In a pre-COVID world, Richard returns to Europe’s most instagrammed city to wander the streets, recalling his time there in 1989 during the heady weeks of the Velvet Revolution. The book takes off from here, providing a personally curated guide through gothic towers, baroque palaces and zig-zag lanes.
