Duncan Robertson in B O D Y

“One of those things most difficult to convey about the special conditions in which we lived was the visegradišag: that everything, buying bread, recycling, riding the tram, came with a surreal associated cost that was impossible to anticipate and could range in consequence from mild discomfort to soul-shattering alienation, forcing you to withdraw from the human experience and curl up in bed with plastic trays of precooked meals that you nurtured toward palatability with streams of your own panicked tears.”

– from Visegrad by Duncan Robertson, forthcoming from New Europe Books in March 2022
