Fire on Water


In this pair of short novels. Arnost Lustig continues his lifelong project of creating a universe - at once concrete and dreamlike - to examine the horrors of the Holocaust and the impossible burden of living as a survivor. The Abyss is the fragmented memories of David Wiesenthal, aged twenty, tortured by what he has witnessed and by the knowledge that luck - not skill, not courage, certainly not goodness - separated the survivors from the doomed. He seeks solace remembering the women he's loved or desired, even the one who represents his death. In Porgess, the narrator recounts the life of the title character, ""the most handsome boy in Jewish Prague"" who was paralyzed on the last day of World War II. The two discuss their mutual fascinations - women, jazz, the significance of numbers - in sometimes bitter, sometimes sardonic voices, but always with the specters of the dead and the guilt of survival close at hand.
