Críticas:

The narrating voice is funny, scientific, infantile, sarcastic, and eerie . . . Europeana is a both a very strange work of history and an ingenious work of art.

Europeana is a convincing sum of that ugly century. Certainly recommended.

Heir of Kafka and of the good soldier Svejk, Ourednik takes advantage of the interval between facts of an irrefutable precision to create summaries as disconcerting as they are preemptory.

Enthralled by matters of language, Ourednik offers a burlesque vision of the history of contemporary Europe, combining the tragic aspect of the situation with anecdotal facts that stress the absurdity of the twentieth century.

Touching on subjects and events as disparate as the invention of the bra, Barbie dolls, Scientology, eugenics, the Internet, war, genocide and concentration camps, it unspools in a relentless monotone that becomes unexpectedly engaging, even frightening.

You out there drop everything you are doing and go immediately and read this book. It's only 132 pages reading without stopping without breathing you will have encountered a fantastic writer. --Raymond Federman, author of Double or Nothing

Juxtaposing East and West and blurring Barbie and Buchenwald, Ourednik's stream of historical consciousness shreds familiar narrative trajectories and compresses 100 years of still-fresh history into a roughly equivalent number of pages.

Reseña del editor:

Europeana: A Brief History of the Twentieth Century is an eccentric overview of all the horrors, contradictions, and absurdities of this century. From World War I to Hitler to racism in America, Ourednik encapsulates in this short work the essence of what the twentieth century was all about and what the next century promises to be.

Descripción Dalkey Archive Press, United States, 2005. Paperback. Condición: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Told in an informal, mesmerizing voice, Ouredn?k represents the twentieth century in all its contradictions and grand illusions, demonstrating that nothing substantial has changed between 1900 and 1999--humanity is still hopeful for the future and still mired in age-old conflicts. As he demonstrates that nothing can be reduced to a single, true viewpoint, Ouredn?k mixes hard facts and idiosyncratic observations, highlighting the horror and absurdity of the twentieth century and the further absurdity of attempting to narrate this history.
