Amid the routine of daily lifewith its flirtations and quarrels, longings and disappointmentsthe mechanism of persecution spares no one: A renowned opera singer is savagely beaten for suspicion of homosexuality- a mother writes to the Ghetto Administration for a good deal on penknives confiscated from Jewish deportees- a student is tortured by the Gestapo for a vague association with the Young Socialist Workers- a husband files for divorce when his wife shops at a Jewish-owned store. Intersecting stories of common citizens, both sinned against and sinning, reveal uncanny, entwined relationships in a nation where no one remains untouched by suspicion and fear, where respectable housewives become informants and saviors, and children become protectors and abusers. A masterly display of bravura virtuosity, "The Inventory" is the final, terrible account of how allold and young, affluent and destitute, the pampered and neglectedwere transformed by oppression and tyranny. Proclaimed a classic in Germany, this unforgettable novel establishes Gila Lustiger as one of contemporary literature s most important voices."
