In , at the age of 50 and three years before the fall of communism in Romania, Norman Manea decided to emigrate abroad, first to Germany, later reaching the final destination - The Paradise, The Other World, The United States. He was to come back one decade later, in The return visit, awaited with doubts and apprehension, awakens memories from his previous life.

Through a non-linear chronology and convoluted narrative, he slowly reconstructs the Nothing is incompatible in Romania. Through a non-linear chronology and convoluted narrative, he slowly reconstructs the image of his family and friends, while recollecting the experiences that shaped him: Holocaust, Communism, Exile and, above all, his Jewish origin.

It is a pretext to muse on subjects such as language, identity, history, belonging, formation, ambiguity and adaptation. It is a book for the patient reader, as many things are suggested or implied, without completely explaining everything.

It is not a book to skim through, but one which requires the undivided attention of its reader. The convoluted language, intermingled narrative and the abundance of historical and literary details will only appeal to a restricted audience. But language is, ultimately, a mere conceited emblem of failure. I admit I had difficulties with the language in the beginning - the writing seems pretentious and pointlessly difficult, which prompts many readers to accuse Manea of trying too hard to impress.

I was tempted to file him under the same category but, while trying to decipher the structure and meaning of his phrases, an alternate explanation started to form in the back of my mind.

It may not be the real explanation but it worked for me, preventing me from abandoning the book midway. Under such uniformity of expression, his own resistance seems to have flourished all the more, resulting in a complicated inner language.

He basks in this language, he plays with words, he attributes meanings and associations, he denies the simple, the mundane. The result is not necessarily a tactile explosion of words; I have perceived it more as an erudite, academic, conscious exercise.

Language remains the wound. The notion of hooligan There is only one fertile debut in the world - hooliganism. Manea sees the hooligan as an uprooted, undefined, non-aligned human being - even an exiled. He was neither here, nor there. But what was his identity then? What is a Jew without religion or knowledge of the sacred language, without political orientation or chauvinist inclinations?

Does surviving the Holocaust, the Communism, the Exile legitimate the Jew identity? Do traumas and initiations allow a person to consider oneself a Jew? How can Jews integrate if neither the assimilation, nor conversion could ever grant them the affiliation to a nation? Their fate, at least for the Romanian Jews, is to remain hooligans. A writer under communism How can one be a writer without being free? Our place is here.

We are writers, we have no choice, considered one of his friends. Manea admitted he was blinded, too, by the vainglory of misery. Death was present everywhere, but choosing the exile meant the loss of an important part of oneself; it could have meant the suicide of the writer, as well. But, in order to write, one has to be alive. The exile offered a partial, temporary salvation - it was salvation not from the metaphorical death, but the real, irreparable death.

And, realizing that he can carry his country with him - through his native language, Manea took the route of escape. He chose to be the undefined, the uprooted, the outcast. He embraced his role as a hooligan. He becomes obsessed with duality, with the presence of masks. But is confusion the ultimate possession of the exiled? The Death of Ivan Illyich. Ward Number Six. I am profoundly grateful for this living, flesh-and-blood, yet unearthly memoir.
