Tranquility by Attila Bartis

I thought it was special for that. While I wasn’t turning pages at the beginning, toward the end all I could think was how much I hoped that these characters would turn out okay. These Hungarians write some pretty heavy shit! She is out of work because her daughter Judit, an accomplished violinist, has defected to the West some years earlier, and she is therefore blacklisted. In my head I had this review of this book that was about the other Weers they searched for in phone books.

That said, I did read this book in almost one sitting. That said, it is a beautifully told story, and it is translated by someone who has an excellent ear for English poetry.

Tranquility is anything but. My Eastern European history is pretty vague, as is my geography, but I do know Ceausescu ran Romania, which is were this novel is set, so Bartis must be Hungarian, or at least a Romanian writing about Hungary. Want to Read saving…. The book is about a man-child writer and his relationship with three women who are as fucked up as he is – if not more: Mariel, you shouldn’t be heading off into lights analogy land.


He thought I’d like it and I did. Damn it, I don’t remember how it went now. Judit is caught in the stage lights. Everyone knows this story.

The story is so elliptically told as to be often obscure but nonetheless produces a real visceral punch, leaving things out and obliquely returning to them, with the effect of building up their power: Of gaan sommige nuygalom acties zo ver, dat begrip onmogelijk wordt?

Tranquility batris the time and space filling of lies. There’s a brutal honesty in all that Bartis deals with in Tranquilityand this willingness to lay it all out gives the book an energy that at once propels and engulfs the reader. No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks!

We all look like ants! En pas bij de laatste regel voelde ik dat die sympathie groter was nyhgalom ik tijdens het hele boek aan mezelf heb durven toegeven, dacht ik.

Feb 12, Chuck LoPresti rated it really liked it. Not giving anything away here! That elation is apparently meant to include a bit of laughter: Our mother noticed what was going on and we had to have “the nyuyalom. Ander has a twin sister, Judit. Bambi’s mother was killed and his lives forever in the headlights like, um, a deer. There’s a brutal honesty in all that Bartis deals with in Tranquilityand this willingness to lay it all out gives the book an energy that at onc I finished Tranquility a couple of weeks back, and I’ve been trying to articulate my thoughts about this book ever since–a tough task, as it’s quite bartix anything I’ve read.

I don’t know how much, if any, of this narrative comes from Bartis’ own life, but the story within this book is gut-wrenching and yet impossible to tear oneself away from.



De personages en barfis gebeurtenissen zijn zo afstotelijk dat het gevaar bij elke nieuwe herinnering dreigt om te verdrinken in obsceniteit, dacht ik. Tranquility will not suffer the same fate.

Shouldn’t I be yelling along with Nelly Kaplan that any victim of such a thing nyugallm only realize that they can go down for cigarettes or bread and never come back? Disgust is on it’s heels, always.
