Agota Kristof – Yesterday

All Agota Kristof’s motifs

Even with a very thin plot, Agota Kristof manages to set up a very short novel that knows how to touch with clarity a multitude of motifs: from the condition of immigrants to that of the workers, from disorientation to the illusion of an identity, from love to betrayal, and so on. A mirror reflecting (as in the Trilogy of the city of K.) the life of the author herself. All of this using a dense style, without frills and trivialities, and with a sagacious and never superficial narration. Unmissable.
