Details

Told in an informal, mesmerizing voice, Ourednik 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 - Ourednik 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.
