My Life with Blondie by Jiří Klobouk

A fifty-year-old man, named Harley Davidson, has suffered since  puberty from a vivid  fantasy, a condition not as rare as it might seem: alongside reality, which he  perceives accurately, he has created for himself a second, parallel world of dreams.

For three decades he has been the faithful and constant admirer of an American idol - Blondie - an actress he once saw on a magazine cover.

In the apartment he shares with his girlfriend, he not only has an archive of clippings  and a collection of poetry inspired by his eternal wait for his beloved, but there's  even a chair prepared for Blondie's arrival.
We become acquainted with Harley's entire life - from childhood, through the demise of two marriages and participation in the Vietnam war, to the melancholy present of  an aging man afraid of losing his mindless job as a receptionist anticipating that  Blondie one day will book a room in the hotel where he works. When Blondie finally  arrives, for Harley the reality turns to another dream.

Other titles translated into English are:
Robert B. Vurm's Rudolf II And His Prague and Hommage à Bosch, as well as the Encyclopedia of Czech and Moravian Wines by professor Vilém Kraus.
