Reviews

Praise for Imre Kert sz's The Pathseeker "Kert sz's work is a profound meditation on the great and enduring themes of love, death and the problem of evil, although for Kert sz, it's not evil that is the problem but good." --John Banville, author of The Sea "From Imre Kert sz, the winner of the 2002 Nobel Prize for Literature, we have come to expect novels where [his] detectives track themselves, seeking to apprehend their own role in 'the logic' of authoritarianism. . . . From a recipe with these ingredients, it is hard to imagine anything but the highest seriousness. The Pathseeker doesn't disappoint. . . . Kafka comes to mind." --John Leonard, Harper's Magazine "Original and chilling." --The New York Review of Books "The Pathseeker is a necessary addition to Mr. Kert sz's work in English, and should occasion thanks to both the novelist and his translator, Tim Wilkinson, who has rendered Mr. Kert sz's (famously difficult) Hungarian into a flowing, able English--as well as to Melville House's fascinating 'The Contemporary Art of the Novella' series, which rubric The Pathseeker falls under. . . . And with the introduction of The Pathseeker into English, after 30 years of silence, we should pay grateful and careful attention." --New York Sun "[A] profound and puzzling novella... Kert sz reminds us that some things can never be named." --Los Angeles Times "A wonderful opportunity to deepen our understanding of Kert sz." --The Nation
