Country of Memory

(1998)
A novel by

 
A Kafkaesque novel set in an unnamed Eastern European country, centered around Petir, a clerk in a state run banking/insurance business, whose job it is to prevent handicapped people from collecting disability or insurance payments by tying them up in and bureaucratic doubletalk and red tape. One of his claimants, a psychotic dwarf, who Petir uncharacteristically tries to help, sees him, unfairly, as an enemy and begins to stalk him.

At the same time Petir is caught up in political intrigue, as government forces attempt to suppress revolutionary activity in the countryside, and personal intrigue as he is drawn toward a mysterious woman who is the mistress of a friend.
