Description
The war is over. Miroslav Blam walks along the former Jew Street in Novi Sad, and he remembers. He remembers the hunchbacked watchmaker, the Lamp merchant, the stove fitter, the grocer, and the lawyer who was a Communist. All dead.

Blam lives. He stays with a wife who repeatedly betrays him, raising a daughter fathered by the collaborator who seduced his mother and saved his, Blam's, life. After the war, he seeks no revenge, no retribution. Life of a piece, but only half a life -- made all the more agonizing by the clarity with which he sees the events around him.

Blam is in the end a book about violence, set in a part of the world that has repeatedly been violated. Blam speaks to the human condition, as much under ordinary circumstances as in extreme situations.
