Kaddish for an Unborn Child by Imre Kertesz
Book DescriptionThe first word in this mesmerizing novel by the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature is No. It is how the novel s narrator, a middle-aged Hungarian-Jewish writer, answers an acquaintance who asks him if he has a child. It is the answer he gave his wife (now ex-wife) years earlier when she told him that she wanted one. The loss, longing and regret that haunt the years between those two no s give rise to one of the most eloquent meditations ever written on the Holocaust. As Kertesz s narrator addresses the child he couldn t bear to bring into the world he ushers readers into the labyrinth of his consciousness, dramatizing the paradoxes attendant on surviving the catastrophe of Auschwitz. Kaddish for the Unborn Child is a work of staggering power, lit by flashes of perverse wit and fueled by the energy of its wholly original voice. Translated by Tim Wilkinson"
