"The first word of this haunting novel is no . It is how the narrator, a middle-aged Hungarian Jewish writer, answers an acquaintance who asks if he has a child and it is how he answered his, now ex-, wife when she told him she wanted a baby. The loss, longing, and regret that haunt the years between those two no s give rise to one of the most eloquent meditations ever written on the Holocaust.As Kertesz s narrator addresses the child he couldn t bear to bring into the world, he takes readers on a mesmerising, lyrical journey through his life, from his childhood to Auschwitz to his failed marriage."

"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 *
