Jiří Klobouk writes fiction, radio plays, poetry and essays. He discovered jazz when he was twelve and later began to visualize the world around him through a camera lens - he worked for 20 years in television. These experiences are reflected in his writing. He created a body of work in which – as one critique noted: "We could feel the rhythm and see things from unexpected angles."
Many short stories have appeared in literary periodicals: Partisan Review, Chicago Review, Stories and Artful Dodge.
For Winter Wolves, a story published in Mid-American Review, he was named outstanding writer in the 1985-86 The Pushcart Prize edition.
His list of books includes:
MY LIFE WITH BLONDIE, a novel
RADIO PLAYS I,
RADIO PLAYS II,
MUSIC AFTER MIDNIGHT, poetry
THE STAIR CLIMBER, a novel
ANTI-COMMUNIST MANIFESTO (1975),
JAZZ II:Parents, a novel
THIRD WIFE, a collection of short stories
