Bacharevič from Belarus and translator Thomas Weiler

(Event in German)


This "total novel" is populated by eccentric characters: lonely seekers, feverish dreamers, disheveled existences, born escapists. There is Maŭčun, the boy who dreams of flying west with his beloved goose until a young spy falls from the sky at his feet. The dead man in Berlin's Rose Garden, whose mysterious clues lead investigator Teresius Skima through a network of bookshops across Europe to a closed-off superstate. Or Oleg Olegovich, a misanthrope from Minsk who has sworn off languages and invented a new one: Balbuta. His secret sweetheart, whom he cherishes and nurtures.

They all dig, dig deep and dream themselves light as a feather, discover siblings in spirit, fall out of time, overcome boundaries. But the chain dogs bark ever louder - in Berlin, Prague, Paris, Vilnius, Minsk...

Alhierd Bacharevič's great European eve novel already sensed in 2017 what is only gradually beginning to dawn on us here. The novel is now banned in Belarus. Since the end of 2020, the author has lived in exile in various places in Switzerland and currently lives in Hamburg.
"Europas Hunde" was published in German translation by Voland & Quist Verlag in February 2024.
