Review

The universality of its vision rivals that of Gogol's Dead Souls. --W. G. Sebald

Ingeniously composed and fascinating. "

Lifts the reader along in lunar leaps and bounds. "

An inexorable, visionary book by the contemporary Hungarian master of apocalypse who inspires comparison with Gogol and Melville.--Susan Sontag

In Krasznahorkai s deft hands, the effect is a layered, freewheeling, amazingly persuasive tour of living human consciousness, in varied states of self-awareness.--Chris Lehmann"

Krasznahorkai's artistry merits serious notice. May further translations grant him the wider notice he deserves among English-speaking readers.

Ingeniously composed and fascinating.

The Melancholy of Resistance is a slow lava flow of narrative, a vast black river of type. --George Szirtes

In Krasznahorkai's deft hands, the effect is a layered, freewheeling, amazingly persuasive tour of living human consciousness, in varied states of self-awareness.--Chris Lehmann

The book, a collection of two short stories, acts as a distillation of Krasznahorkai's essential themes: apocalypse and the death of innocent violence.--Jake Romm
