Críticas:

""Fiasco "plays with the art of bearing witness with great risk and proclaims the magnitude of what's becoming an endangered species, the individual, whose death in this century has been repeatedly proclaimed, celebrated and here, denied."--Hans-Harald Muller, "Die Welt" (Germany)
"We knew Imre Kertesz capable of dry wit in the most horrific moments, but his representation of the socialist world reveals a great sense of humor that we did not know about...here we all laugh. And we laugh intelligently."--"L'Express "(France)
"An unforgettable novel...a project with strong Kafkaesque and Camus-charged themes."--Reinhard Baumgart, "Die Zeit, "(Germany)

"[A] powerful book.... If "Fatelessness" was written with a bright mock-naivety that led to comparisons with "Candide," and "Kaddish" employed the harsh comic rant of Thomas Bernhard, then the presiding ghosts of "Fiasco" are clearly Beckett and Kafka, those 20th-century masters of confusion and despair."

Reseña del editor:

Translated into English at last, Fiasco joins its companion volumes Fatelessness and Kaddish for an Unborn Child in telling an epic story of the author's return from the Nazi death camps, only to find his country taken over by another totalitarian government.

Fiasco as Imre Kertesz himself has said, "is fiction founded on reality"--a Kafka-like account that is surprisingly funny in its unrelentingly pessimistic clarity, of the Communist takeover of his homeland. Forced into the army and assigned to escort military prisoners, the protagonist decides to feign insanity to be released from duty. But meanwhile, life under the new regime is portrayed almost as an uninterrupted continuation of life in the Nazi concentration camps-which, in turn, is depicted as a continuation of the patriarchal dictatorship of joyless childhood. It is, in short, a searing extension of Kertesz' fundamental theme: the totalitarian experience seen as trauma not only for an individual but for the whole civilization--ours--that made Auschwitz possible.
