The short story craft at its best These interconnected stories explore the horrors of the fall of Budapest to the Red Army during WWII and the impacts of the resulting Hungarian diaspora on subseuent generations a topic I am embarrassed to say I knew little about until this book Dobozy presents this dark subject with great beauty through multiple character perspectives on the impossible choices humans must make in war times and the stories they tell themselves to survive The Beautician told midway through the collection is one of the most perfect short stories I ve ever read

Siege 13 has been awarded the 2012 Rogers Writers Trust Fiction Prize in Canada underlining just how excellent this book of short stories is Built around one of the many horrific events of World War Two the longterm blockade and starvation of Budapest as the Soviet Army drove westward this is not just a book about the viciousness of war it is also a probing of how one harrowing experience can shape a country and its people throughout the years as the impact of a period of grim agony plays out among survivors and their childrenThe thirteen stories that Tamas Dobozy writes are all darkened by the siege and its memories though only two of them actually take place during the struggle itself The Animals of the Budapest Zoo 1944 45 and The Restoration of the Villa where Tibor Kalman Once Lived Other stories trace the closed in characters of siege survivors such as Rosewood ueens the survival skills that people were forced to develop such as The Beautician and the way that further generations were shaped by their parents grief and pain such as The Selected Mug Shots of Famous Hungarian AssassinsIt can of course easily be concluded that a book of stories about a grim episode in Hungarian history no matter how horrific would normally not resonate deeply in North America So what makes Siege 13 special is not so much its subject matter as the high uality of the writingThe characters in these stories are indelible sharply etched and superbly presented Short stories often lack the depth in characterization that a novel can develop over its full length But Dobozy avoids that problem Partly that is because the narrator is often a common thread in the stories with a rueful personal perspective that ties much of the book together Certain characters such as Maria one of the raped women from the siege appear in several stories struggling to come to terms with her victimization and her survival Mostly though Dobozy s effectiveness rests on the pointed details with which he brings his characters alive right from Benedek Gorbe with his stubble pants the size of garbage bags half smouldering cigars in the first story to Otto Kovacs looking indescribably old worn out broken a tattered black overcoat hanging off his bony shoulders in the lastThese character descriptions are just one part of the excellence of Dobozy s writing The human relationships traced in such stories as The Atlas of B Gorbe and The Society of Friends are complex and compelling The analysis of betrayal and loyalty is intricate and multi layered in The Beautician where a striving graduate student must decide whether to reveal an older man s ambivalent past even as he is himself trying to sort out his changing ties with a young lover There is even a wicked comic edge to such stories as The Miracles of Saint Marx where a labour camp escapee survives by discovering Das Kapital is nourishing to eatSiege 13 is in many ways a symbol of the new world in which we live where genocide and destruction anywhere set off changes that echo across many countries and through the generations In that sense this book is brother to the Vietnam novels of Lam and Thuy to the novels about Rwanda extermination to the Boyden and Richler novels about war and its impact on aboriginal Canada and immigrant Montreal What is striking about these short stories is the way they permit that harsh process to be perceived from so many angles and with such depth of feelingThus Siege 13 is a universal story despite the intricate detail on the Budapest tragedy It is about stubborn survival not always very heroic with huge human costs sometimes accompanied by compromise but enduring and ultimately powerful
