Danilo Kis ~ Garden, Ashes

just finished reading, in the midst of an unplanned Danilo Kis binge, his novel, GARDEN, ASHES; narrated by the child of a Hungarian Jew father taken to the death camps, like Kis’ own father, this is a Holocaust novel that communicates the tragic enormity through the minutiae, the miniscule, the intimate cusp of memory and death.
an incredibly powerful, poetic masterpiece.
