Beschreibung

Imre Kertész’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.

Imre Kertész, 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.
