One of the Great Novels of the Holocaust

Imre Kertesz's Fateless considered

The book is also translated as Fatelessness, and the fact that there have been two translations over a very short time speak, I think, to the merits of this very fine book.  Kertesz won the Nobel Prize a few years back and seems to have sunk largely into that slough of the forgotten--ironic considering that one of his books is about that precisely.  If you get a chance, you should take up Fateless/Fatelessness
