About the Author

Imre Kertesz was born in 1929 in Budapest. As a youth, he was imprisoned in Auschwitz and later in Buchenwald. He worked as a journalist and playwright before publishing Fatelessness, his first novel, in 1975. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2002.

Reviews

"Condenses a lifetime into a story told in a single night...exhilarating for [its] creative energy" * World Literature *
"Stunning... resembles such other memorably declamatory fictions as Camus' The Fall and Dostoyevsky's Notes from Underground" * Kirkus Reviews *
"While the average reader cannot pretend truly to understand the reality of those who suffered in concentration camps, Kertesz draws us one step closer" * Observer *
"For taking us somewhere no other writer has, Kertesz fully deserved his Nobel Prize" * Independent *
"Tim Wilkinson is a seriously good translator...I may have given the impression that this is harrowing, and it is; but it has its moments of great, consoling insight, is about far more than just the Holocaust and in its own haunting way provides comfort for the afflicted" -- Nicholas Lezard * Guardian *
