Goetz and Meyer

David Albahari

Turning our attention to Yugoslavia during the Second World War, we recommend David Albahari's brilliant novel, Goetz and Meyer. Written in stream-of-conscisouness and in a single paragraph, a teacher in Belgrade wonders just what the two men (and these are, in fact, their names) who drove the infamous gas van chatted about all day. There is truly nothing like it and we recommend it highly.
