This book is presented as a novel but it s hard in reading it not to think of it as a memoir I have given some thought to what makes a novel read as a memoir and I can t uite pinpoint it but maybe we expect a novel to have a certain dymanic form and to be shaped by certain dramatic occurrences and by a certain progressive development This book is driven by the urgency of telling a story that hasn t been told that of the Slovenian minority in Austria during WWII This too felt memoiristic rather than novelistic to me in this particular book though of course this needn t be the case for every book driven by a historical urgency In any case I was captured by the writing for most of the book the protagonist s childhood the increasingly haunting memories that fell her family and many of her fellow villagers and that eventually fill up her mind Her collapse under the cumulative weight of all this silenced unprocessed past The unrecognition of Austro Slovenian partisans both by the Austrian and the then Yugoslavian governments the former because the partisans are perceived as affiliated a bit too much with communism the latter because they are not communist enough There are some incredibly moving passages in which the narrator explains see how the partisans simply did what needed to be done for their and their community s survival how it wasn t even a choice really They were Slavs therefore prime targets in Hitler s path of racial purification And many of them the majority of those who didn t join the partisans in the mountains ended up in fact in concentration camps and only a few returned and those who returned were never the same The child and then young woman who narrates the story conveys powerfully first the mystery in which her family and the entire village is steeped then her own sense of responsibility for the survival of her family in which trauma is ravaging minds and physical health then her need to leave but also at a distance to understand because if she understands the terrible trauma and the terrible belittlement and disgracing that followed maybe just maybe things will get better for someone maybe As a document of a poorly known corner of WWII this is terrific As a document of what makes some people last and some people fold this is terrific too But at the end 15 to the end I felt that the novel had told me whatever story it had to tell and there was no need to continue I wish a careful editor had gotten in here and cut the bits that needed to be cut and blended a bit rationally the bits that needed to be connected There is too much repetition There is also some clumsy meshing of styles Still if you are interested in the particular story this book tells then you should read it And if you are a WWII buff then you should read it And if you feel compelled to remember the people who died for justice and freedom but history forgot then you should read it too Thank you Netgalley for the ARC Gli uomini vengono da Marte le donne da
