Fateless by Imre Kertesz
Fateless

Korrick, May 9, 2014

One of the few works concerning the Holocaust that not only avoids the sentiment that so often overwhelming cloys the subject's treatment in fiction, but subverts it, freeing the main character from all the expectations saddled with the title of "Holocaust survivor" without in any way belittling the event itself or those who went through it. Kertész more than earned the Nobel Prize for Literature by composing this piece of work; all that is left to do is to lure the audiences away from the likes of the film of 'Schindler's List' and 'The Book Thief', so that they may get a taste of the truth, rather than a rehashing of entertainment for their own quick fix catharsis.
