Über diesen Titel


Re-creating the ephemeral world and rich cultural milieu in which they lived, these stories examine a lost time and a lost place--that part of Eastern Europe swept away by World War II.

From Publishers Weekly:

This impressive collection of eight stories is divided into three sections, each section complete in itself, each examining, from a different angle, the themes that hold Wegner captive. The sense of place is always the same though the name differs: a provincial mid-European town, just before and after World War I. Wegner is fascinated by the lightly veiled bestiality of the different European "tribes"; all his protagonists are at odds with an alien society. The first four stories loosely follow the adventures of Zofia and Ala, upper-middle-class twin children of Polish extraction living in the Ukraine, and the stories of love and betrayal they either indirectly experience or hear secondhand. Representative is "The Huzul Flute," which describes their vacation in the Carpathian Mountains with their mother and her lover. The second section contains one story, "A Death in a Quiet Town," which recounts from different points of view a hanging by the SS during the war just outside Salzburg. The last three narratives, manifestly the best, follow Dirk, a Silesian teenager who dreams of going to the U.S. after the war while he works in a German coal mine to support his family. With Dirk, the author has found his subject matter; these stories are vivid and extremely moving.
