Post April 10, The quiet poetry of hunger, powerlessness and death, written in perhaps 80 short episodes, often like prose poems, with only occasional changes of tone towards the ironic or mildly humorous.
If I could give half stars, I would have given this four and a half. Every short chapter of this is like poetry; it forces you to dwell on the words and glide through its haunting imagery.

The prisoners of the concentration camp here are ethnic Germans from Romania, taken and deported to the Soviet Union after the end of the Second World War. The Hunger Angel is no less than an Emperor’s New Clothes for the experience of being imprisoned and enslaved by a corrupt and expedient power.
Although given top billing, it is one of many new names given to previously elusive phenomena here.
