Omschrijving

The first English translation of a modern epic, a great Middle European novel spanning two hundred years, which explores a world destroyed by fascism, communism and nationalism.

This is, without doubt, the most important novel of Croatian literature in the last few years

A novel that describes two centuries of European history; it is as frightening and as mysterious as the Danube. Brilliant!

A great novel, certainly one of the best in recent history of Croatian literature

Like Olga Tokarczuk, Šnajder has written a novel about a Europe that has lost its diversity and has been
destroyed by fascism, communism and, in recent times, nationalism ... a modern epic



I think this is one of the great novels of Mitteleuropa, like Tišma, Kiš, the young György Konrád

A masterpiece of European literature ... this novel can compete with the great works of world literature
such as Grossman's Life and Fate and Tolstoy's War and Peace



This is a literary testimony to the possibility of writing after Auschwitz, a writing that is difficult and uncertain, but inevitably intimate and personal without exception

A masterpiece

Slobodan Šnajder graduated with a Philosophy and English degree at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb.
