really liked it

lustig is one of my favorite writers. this is a fairly early work, and his style and range becomes more distilled over time. i'd recommend starting with the collection 'street of lost brothers,' if you haven't read lustig before. he writes only about the holocaust. he's a survivor of several death camps. his writing crashes together and conflates naturalist realism and surreal imagination. several of his books have been made into films, including 'night and hope,' which won the royal palm award at the locarno festival in 1963. lustig is one of the two screenwriters on this film, as he is on some others.
