Product Details


“Appealingly meditative. . . . A compelling story, with a clever twist. . . . Kertész writes with characteristic lucidity, grace, and grim-gay humor.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer “A sophisticated and brilliant dissection of nihilistic power and its servants.” —Times Literary Supplement (London) “A timeless, placeless parable. . . . A chilling procedural of moral degradation.” —New York Magazine"Hopefulness in the face of tragedy makes Kertesz a joy to read, even when he describes our darkest horrors." —The Believer"Kertesz spins a deeply self-conscious web of psychological drama." —The New York Sun
