Macht und Widerstand
Publisher: S. Fischer
Konstantin is a resistance fighter. He catches the eye of the Bulgarian state security already when in school and can no longer escape its grip. Metodi is an officer, opportunist and careerist, a representative of the apparatus. They are entangled in a struggle for life and memory that lasts for over half a century. Ilija Trojanow unfolds a broad historical panorama in front of the readers. He condenses a wealth of individual experiences, gathered from true stories, which Trojanow has collected since the 1990s in conversations with witnesses, into an astounding narrative about human dignity and malice.
