FREE READ Leica format ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB This is like a fairy tale all thisA woman meets a stranger who tells her her identity is a lie 772 or 789 children’s brains rest silently in jars A traveller comes to a uotidian city unknowingly approaching her pastFrom the author of Trieste shortlisted for the Independen. So says Thomas Bernhard If he were alive I d propose to Thomas Bernhard I d propose I d say Thomas stay close at hand Thomas I like your fugue show me how one goes away and I ll bring you little boxes for breathingLeica Format 2003 translated by Celia Hawkesworth in 2015 from Da a Drndi s 2003 original is the 5th of the author s novels The novel s introductory paragraph contrasting three different meanings of fugue rather writes its own review Fugue a medical disorder involving memory loss long term amnesia during which mental capacity is not disturbed The condition may provoke a headlong departure from familiar surroundings as the result of an insuperable uncontrolled need to create a new life in new surroundings Following recovery the sufferer does not recall the previous pathological state From the Latin word fuga flight particularly flight from the homeland persecution but also expulsion Fugue a polyphonic musical composition in which themes are repeated successively according to specific rules an artistic form with a theme and response which is not the case with these sketches that are in fact junk they contain no response because it is debatable whether they pose uestions at all any kind of uestions They are sometimes repeated repeated according to specific rules and they are sometimes also outside them but they have nothing to ask Fugue a German architectural term a joint between stones or tiles a deliberate gap in the building process to obviate the possibility of the construction developing fissures a crack which might be a metaphor for this debris There is less of sense of one binding thread here than in Trieste Belladonna EEG indeed the book that this most reminded me of was Olga Tokarczuk s Flights Drndic s fugues serving a similar purpose to Tokarczuk s constellations as well as some similar themes Sometimes curious coincidences occur those coincidences have nothing to do with this town they are general coincidences existential coincidences overlappings crisscrossings chance happenings never fully resolved little cosmic earthuakes that is neglected time melted time resembling literary fabrications elusiveOne recurrrent theme however is that of medical experiments carried out on unsuspected or helpless suspects including but certainly not exclusively by Nazi doctors in WW2 eg the Tuskegee experiments in the US on African Americans with syphilis who were delibarately denied treatment so the progress of the disease through from 1932 1972 Sixty years after the war conscience was still carrying out a search of its own hiding places it couldn t rest it dug through the archives and dossiers through the memories of the survivors Medical faculties and institutes factories producing glass cars medicines steel banks churches museums cemeteries throughout Austria and Germany hide the rotten corpses of historical remains submerged in the muddy depths of the past worm eaten and deformed The past refuses to sink it floats on waters that spread a stench but keep flowing on here there throughout the world the past attacks the memory digs through recollections endeavours to clean up its rubbish the great junk heap of the world This pathetically late effort this nauseating human aspiration to obtain forgiveness for unforgiveable sins committed this longing for purification from unpurifiable sins is carried out in a whisper with downcast eyes half secretly unwillingly and cravenlyAs far as experiments are concerned why did history latch on to us SS members We had models to learn from The Japanese the Americans multinational companies Pharmaceutical factories all over the world are still carrying out experiments on people they are producing new biological weapons In the name of the future In the name of progressAnd a sense of displacement runs through the book including that of the narrator exiled from Belgrade to the now small town of Rijeka by the Yugoslavian civil war but with her Serbian accent and vocabulary also an exile within the now Croatian city For those who pass it without entering the city is one thing it is another for those who are trapped by it and never leave There is the city where you arrive for the first time and there is another city which you leave never to return Each deserves a different nameThe chronicling of the gradual decline of Rijeka from its heights as a major port during the heyday of the Austrian Hungarian empire to provincial irrelevance also serves as a salutary lesson for BrexitAs often Drndic borrows freely from European literature incorporating the voices and words of authors such as Pessoa Italo Calvino Charles Baudelaire Kapu ci ski Yeats Shakespeare Ibsen Mirjana Stefanovi Wis awa Szymborska and of course Thomas Bernhard Overall for me this suffered a little from reading in relatively close succession to three other Drndic novels The 3 star 35 rounded down rating is relative to her other works but she was a vitally important writer and I strongly recommend Trieste in particular and indeed all her translated fiction complete with intertextual elements characters from this reappear in Belladonna and which blends into one overall 5 star workDa a Drndi and Thomas BernhardAs she stated in an interview in 2017 on her most important influenceWhat comes to mind immediately is Thomas Bernhard because he gave me the courage I saw that you can be angry you don t have to be polite you can be nasty you can criticize And while reading him I was so happy that I had the right to be angry with my country with politics Because during this old system I was just thinking now you could talk softly against your country and the party at home When you went abroad that was sort of forbidden You weren t supposed to criticize your country and also it was also preferable to drop by the embassy or the consulate and tell them you were there And Bernhard said when I read his first book translated into Serbian it was Frost I think some thirty years ago then they discovered him in Croatia so when I first read him I thought This is wonderful you can be angry you can curse you can really say what you think if you really know how to say itIn this novel uoting The Loser translated by Jack DawsonThose who live in the country get idiotic in time without noticing it for a while they think it s original and good for their health but life in the country is not original at all for anyone who wasn t born in and for the country it shows a lack of taste and is only harmful to their health The people who go walking in the country walk right into their own funeral in the country and at the very least they lead a grotesue existence which leads them first into idiocy then into an absurd death So says
