The whole page text is one paragraph. It starts with the main character as witness to a woman being slapped on a riverbank and after following her, he starts seeing a symbol everywhere and becomes obsessed with it, as if it holds some grand message about the universe.
The book never really decides what it wants to be exactly. Aleks rated it really liked it Jun 20, He stared at me as As stated previously, I’m always fond of books that depict Belgrade.
In fact, the narrator’s mind albahai the present when he’s telling the story is of little importance.

Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Stylistically amazing, though the central third of the book occasionally felt a bit repetitious.
Although I have no interest in the Kaballah, Albahari was able to keep my attention. I have heard some reviews comparing it to Umberto Eco, but while I really enjoy Eco’s work I found Leeches very dense and a bit of a slog to read.
Albahari definitely uses brilliant language, has many original ideas, and is no writer of soap operas. Albagari Kabbalah plays a major role in the story, so if you have zero idea what that is, I recommend you skip this novel entirely. Milena added it Jun 14, Ma anche, quanti ebrei? For those who love a thrilling literary ride, this is something special.
In the late eighties, Albahari initiated the first formal petition to legalize marijuana in Yugoslavia. Terribly, awfully sad in a completely unexpected way.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. At times there is albahri feeling of being overwhelmed by the words as they seem to come as in a deluge, so you need to put the book down and reflect on you read. Books by David Albahari.

It is not the other we fear, we fear ourselves, we fear the changes the presence of others may impose. It’s hard to know how to rate this novel, which is short on plot and long on arcane information and interesting or amusing digressions.
