Volatile texts

by Zsuzsanna Gahse | 24 February 2017
Synopsis
The narrator of Volatile Texts: Us Two falls in love with Pierre, the book's secret protagonist. During their trysts she rediscovers Switzerland, a place where every valley has its own language and every person is translated. It's a perfect microcosm of Europe?a collection of accents, languages, and landscapes. Volatile Texts is Zsuzsanna Gahse's ironic and prescient meditation on a Europe that is disintegrating in the same way that the Alps disintegrate into individual lakes and valleys. Yet language itself is the true subject of these prose miniatures, which are volatile and unstable because they expose language as an arbitrary construct made of interchangeable parts; however, this is also what makes the book such an exciting read.
