The novel begins with him witnessing a random act of violence: Leeches by David Albahari.
Shadows by David Albahari
Refresh and try again. Anti-Semitism reared its ugly head once again, along with anti-Roma, anti-Albanian, anti-Croat sentiment and the game of all so-called patriots in this worldblame somebody else for your own shortcomings. But it should be worth my checking out more of Albahari’s stuff. Very absorbing book, though I thought he was going to do more with all the Kabbalism and numerology and so on, but in the end it devolved into a kind of very-pat “just say no to anti-Semitism” message.
Anchi marked it as to-read May 29, As the narrator delves deeper into arcane topics, he begins to see signs of anti-Semitism, past and present, throughout the city and he feels impelled to denounce it. En tout cas, je l’ai lu.
To decipher the manuscript—a collection of fragments on the Kabbalah and the history of the Jews of Zemun and Belgrade—he contacts an old schoolmate, now an eccentric mathematician, and a group of men from the Jewish community. He lost me here.
A mio parere questo libro va gustato lentamente come quando si beve un buon vino: Aleks rated it really liked it Jun 20, He graduated from the University of Belgrade. The only notable female character, Margareta is not written strongly, and provides little more than a lustful distraction for the protagonist. I’m going to resell this book and start a new one. And, while I liked Gotz and Meyer and thought it was overall successfully executed, I do feel that albayari wall-of-text contributed a lot more to the narrative of Leeches than to Gotz and Meyer.
There is a very funny description of a pornographic movie, which the narrator turns on because such movies “turn into a medley of attractive geometric patterns, which help me think calmly about other things. He has been contributing to Geist magazine.

He graduated from the University of Belgrade. His closest friend Marko tries to get him back to reality, cautiously but clearly pointing out the flaws in his thinking. Still, the opening is a bit Pynchonesque although with more of the paranoia and less of the funand Albahari can definitely write a sentence.
Leeches by David Albahari
Tanja Filipenko rated it it was amazing Dec 11, For those who love a thrilling literary ride, this is something special. Themes include reality and dream, friendship and daavid, dislocation and loss. A strange, compelling book that will stay with me.
I can understand why people were disappointed with this book, but I loved it. Albahari creates two incredibly complicated characters no matter what, who can be wildly irrational and impeccably knowledgeable at kbjige same time.
Apr 06, Vincent rated it it was amazing. 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.
