I heard about it from a professor of literature who studies his work. I think I’m going to be able to convince her to write about it for Fiat Lingua, so hopefully information will be forthcoming for the English speaking world. But we do have Czech-speaking conlangers in the community, don’t we? (But perhaps his world aren’t that popular...? I hadn’t heard of the author, either, and I know folks have really turned on magical realism in recent years.)

Apparently he wrote a novel that cake out in 2011 (Lucemburská zahrada—The Garden of Luxembourg) which apparently features a conlang with lots of dialogue and a grammar in the back of the book. Just heard about it; assumed someone would’ve brought it up. The conlang is called Yggur.
