Imre Kertész and Holocaust Literature
Louise Olga Vasvári, Steven Tötösy de Zepetnek
Purdue University Press, 2005 - Literary Criticism - 335 pages
The volume fills a gap in scholarship about Imre Kertesz, whose work to date is largely unknown in the English-speaking world. The papers' authors are scholars from the US, Canada, the UK, Hungary, Germany, and New Zealand. In addition to the papers, the volume contains a bibliography of Kertesz's works including translations, and a bibliography of studies in several languages about his work.
