What will books written about this time in history be like? If they are brilliantly erudite about complicity and politics, growing old and mortality, how we remember and forget history, and the quiet moments that stretch into our lives like cracks in glass, they’ll be like Belladonna. Drndic’s novel is thoughtful, funny, and profound. A must-read for fans of translation and anyone looking for a different perspective on our troubling times.

The novel unfurls into a twisting mass of parallel lives and fated occurrences. Just when the reader believes they are finally on the path of truth, Murakami masterfully unearths new connections and twists, keeping you on your toes. As with the characters, the reader finds themselves falling into a new world and back again, making each person reconsider the reality around them.

Through the story of Hakan, a Swedish immigrant to the United States in the mid 1800s, Diaz meditates on the nature of impersonal landscape, explores a life of isolation, and tours through some of characters that carved the identity of the American West. This is a strange and brilliant version of historical fiction, twisting the genre into something unique. For fans of Cormac McCarthy and  Eleanor Catton's Booker Prize winning novel The Luminaries.
