Imre Kertesz

Liquidation

€ 15.95

Imre Kertesz's savagely lyrical and suspenseful new novel traces the continuing echoes the Holocaust and communism in the consciousness of contemporary Eastern Europe.

Ten years after the fall of communism, a writer named B. commits suicide, devastating his circle and deeply puzzling his friend Kingsbitter. For among B.'s effects, Kingsbitter finds a play that eerily predicts events after his death.

Why did B.-who was born at Auschwitz and miraculously survived-take his life? As Kingsbitter searches for the answer -and for the novel he is convinced lies hidden among his friend's papers-Liquidation becomes an inquest into the deeply compromised inner life of a generation. The result is moving, revelatory and haunting.

The author:
Imre Kertisz, who was born in 1929 and imprisoned in Auschwitz and Buchenwald as a youth, worked as a journalist and playwright before publishing Fatelessness, his first novel, in 1975. He is the author of Looking for a Clue, Detective 'story, The Failure, The Union Jack, Kaddish for an Unborn Child, and A Galley-'slave's Journal. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2002. He lives in Budapest and Berlin.
