Read full description of the books Jardin, Cendre:

Le narrateur raconte son enfance en Yougoslavie et en Hongrie pendant la guerre. Mais très vite il s'efface devant celui qui est le vrai héros du livre, son père, l'inoubliable Édouard Sam, juif de Hongrie. Illuminé, possédé ou prophète, ivre d'alcool autant que de son propre verbe, Édouard Sam a commencé sa « vie publique » par la rédaction d'un indicateur des chemins de fer dont il prépare une réédition qui prend peu à peu des dimensions encyclopédiques - encyclopédie de rêves plutôt que de connaissances. Entraînant dans son errance sa famille bientôt réduite à la misère, Édouard Sam cesse de travailler, se met à vivre dans les bois, aboyant aux chiens, tenu par les villageois pour un sorcier, sans se départir jamais d'une noblesse à peine grandiloquente. Il ne fait plus que de brèves apparitions devant les siens, toujours doucement éblouis à sa vue.
Sans que le ton ne s'élève jamais, le personnage acquiert une présence mythique. Il ne s'agit pas là d'extravagance ou de folie, mais bien de vérité poétique simple. Édouard Sam disparaîtra après la guerre : mais ce touriste qui ne reconnaît pas les siens et disparaît définitivement, était-ce lui ? Ou est-ce un rêve de son fils ?

Read information about the author

Ebook Jardin, Cendre read Online! Danilo Kiš was born in Subotica, Danube Banovina, Kingdom of Yugoslavia, the son of Eduard Kiš (Kis Ede), a Hungarian Jewish railway inspector, and Milica Kiš (born Dragićević) from Cetinje, Montenegro. During the Second World War, he lost his father and several other family members, who died in various Nazi camps. His mother took him and his older sister Danica to Hungary for the duration of the war. After the end of the war, the family moved to Cetinje, Montenegro, Yugoslavia, where Kiš graduated from high school in 1954.

Kiš studied literature at the University of Belgrade, and graduated in 1958 as the first student to complete a course in comparative literature. He was a prominent member of the Vidici magazine, where he worked until 1960. In 1962 he published his first two novels, Mansarda and Psalam 44. Kiš received the prestigious NIN Award for his Peščanik ("Hourglass") in 1973, which he returned a few years later, due to a political dispute.

During the following years, Kiš received a great number of national and international awards for his prose and poetry.

He spent most of his life in Paris and working as a lecturer elsewhere in France.

Kiš was married to Mirjana Miočinović from 1962 to 1981. After their separation, he lived with Pascale Delpech until his early death from lung cancer in Paris.

A film based on Peščanik (Fövenyóra) directed by the Hungarian Szabolcs Tolnai is currently in post-production.

Kiš was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature and was due to win it, were it not for his untimely death in 1989.
