Origin Unknown

French Literature Series
Oliver Rohe
Translated by Lauren Messina

Oliver Rohe’s first novel is a word-crazed monologue in the mind of a man named Selber flying back to his war-torn native country for the first time in years. Grappling with his fear of flying and increasingly possessed by reminiscences of his long-dead childhood friend Roman, the narrator begins to wonder if any of his thoughts, or the decisions he has made in his life, are truly his own. From reflections upon loss, violence, repetition, and individuality, to explicit homages to the works of Thomas Bernhard, Origin Unknown is a remarkable and incisive debut.
