Europeana : A Brief History of the Twentieth Century
by Patrik Ourednik and Gerald Turner


Overview - Patrick Ourednik's first novel to be translated into English is a unique retelling of the history of the twentieth century.

Overview
Patrick Ourednik's first novel to be translated into English is a unique retelling of the history of the twentieth century. Told in an informal, compelling voice, Ourednik represents the twentieth century in all its contradictions and grand illusions, demonstrating that nothing substantial has changed between 1900 and 1999--humanity is still hopeful for the future and still mired in age-old conflicts that can't be reduced to a single viewpoint. Mixing hard facts and idiosyncratic observations, Ourednik highlights the horror and absurdity of the twentieth century and the absurdity of attempting to narrate this history.
