The Book of Blam PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Book of Blam free pdf The war is over. Miroslav Blam walks along the former Jew Street, and he remembers. He remembers Aaron Grun, the hunchbacked watchmaker- and Eduard Fiker, a lamp merchant- and Jakob Mentele, a stove fitter- and Arthur Spitzer, a grocer, who played amateur soccer and had non-Jewish friends- and Sandor Vertes, a lawyer who was a Communist. All dead. As are his younger sister and his best friend, a Serb, both of whom joined the resistance movement- and his mother and father in the infamous Novi Sad raid in January 1942--when the Hungarian Arrow Cross executed 1,400 Jews and Serbs on the banks of the Danube and tossed them into the water. Blam lives. So long as he does, the war will never be over for him. Like The Use of Man, and part of Tisma's lauded Novi Sad Trilogy, The Book of Blam is a searing look at the spiritual devastation of war.
