Dictionary of the Khazars

This sounds really interesting & just ordered it:

The novel takes the form of three cross-referenced mini-encyclopedias, sometimes contradicting each other, each compiled from the sources of one of the major Abrahamic religions (Christianity, Islam, and Judaism). In his introduction to the work, Pavić wrote:

No chronology will be observed here, nor is one necessary. Hence each reader will put together the book for himself, as in a game of dominoes or cards, and, as with a mirror, he will get out of this dictionary as much as he puts into it, for you […] cannot get more out of the truth than what you put into it.[3]


Fiction / non-fiction as not useful distinction


Cultural hegemony (Marxism)

    “Pavić is said to have “[done] everything to disrupt the traditional models of fiction writing such as the development of story and the notions of beginning and end.”
