    An NYRB Classics OriginalSet just after World War I, An Ermine in Czernopol centers on the tragicomic fate of Tildy, an erstwhile officer in the army of the now-defunct Austro-Hungarian Empire, determined to defend the virtue of his cheating sister-in-law at any cost. Rezzori surrounds Tildy with a host of fantastic characters, engaging us in a kaleidoscopic experience of a city where nothing is as it appears—a city of discordant voices, of wild ugliness and heartbreaking disappointment, in which, however, “laughter was everywhere, part of the air we breathed, a crackling tension in the atmosphere, always ready to erupt in showers of sparks or discharge itself in thunderous peals.”

    The elusive narrator of this disconcerting novel is the scion of a decayed aristocratic family from the farther reachers of the defunct Austro-Hungarian Empire. In five psychologically fraught episodes, he revisits his past, from adolescence to middle age, a period that coincides with the 20th-century's ugliest years. Central to reach episode is what might be called the narrator's Jewish Question. He is no Nazi. To the contrary, he is apolitical, accommodating, cosmopolitan. He has Jewish friends, and Jewish lovers, and their Jewishness is a matter of abiding fascination which blinds him and makes him complicit in the terrible realities of his era. 287p.

    The book is a series of portraits - amused, fond, sometimes appalling - of Rezzori's family: his hysterical and histrionic mother, disappointed bymarriage, destructively obsessed with her children's health and breeding; his father, a flirty reactionary, whose only real love was hunting; his haughty older sister, fated to die before thirty; his earthy nursemaid, who introduced Rezzori to the power of storytelling & the inevitability of death; and a beloved governess, Bunchy. Telling their stories, Rezzori tells his own, holding his early life to the light like a crystal until it shines with prismatic brightness.
