Union Jack

",It was...unnecessary for me to fret about who the murderer was: Everybody was.",A haunting, never-before-translated, autobiographical novella by the 2002 Nobel Prize winner. An unnamed narrator recounts a simple anecdote, his sighting of the Union Jackthe British Flagduring the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, in the few days preceding the uprising's brutal repression by the Soviet army. In the telling, partly a digressive meditation on ",the absurd order of chance,", he recalls his youthful self, and the epiphanies of his intellectual and spiritual awakeningan awakening to a kind of radical subjectivity. In his Nobel address Kertesz remembered: ",I, on a lovely spring day in 1955, suddenly came to the realization that there exists only one reality, and that is me, my own life, this fragile gift bestowed for an uncertain time, which had been seized, expropriated by alien forces, and circumscribed, marked up, brandedand which I had to take back from 'History', this dreadful Moloch, because it was mine and mine alone...",The Contemporary Art of the Novella series is designed to highlight work by major authors from around the world.
