Kemal is Bosnian, he turned up in Minneapolis and at South High in the mid nineties when all that shit was going down. But Janie got me The Fortress for my birthday! Happy birthday Ed, I know this is your favorite: dark tales of misery, poverty, violence and alienation in a forgotten corner of the world. With all that as a preface, clearly I was prepared to really love this book.

Right up my alley, and with a recommendation from a source with above-average reliability. And it WAS really good. There are moments of incredibly transcendent writing in The Fortress, it has surprisingly optimistic overtones and is moralistic without being preachy.

I especially appreciate how conflicted the narrator is about how to interpret people and situations he encounters, and how his perspectives on human behavior and the thrust of life change so often but so naturally and understandably over the year or so that the book appears to cover. But I found it very difficult to follow the thread of the story. I was more than halfway through the book before I realized that characters who had initially played incidental roles were suddenly at the center of the plot and I should have gotten to know them better when they were introduced.

Where was this guy from again? How is he related to this other guy? Paging back I found that playing catch-up was not possible. There is simply a lot of information left out.

Still, this and other jarringly non-linear aspects of the story are not without their benefit; it does give the feeling overall of a complex social atmosphere in 19th century Sarajevo which is clearly as difficult to navigate for the narrator as it is for the reader.

So much seemed so unconnected to so much else, and the shifting ways characters behaved towards one another sometimes appeared almost random, to the point that it was not possible to trust your own impressions of who anybody is or just what the eff is going on. My generous side continues to suggest to me that this is probably the point Have to give it another shot.
