Synopsis:

As an ordinary German family flees advancing Russian troops in 1945, they leave behind their first son, Arnold, a loss that has a profound impact on their younger son's life as his parents become obsessed with finding their lost child. A first novel. Reprint.


Review:

"Long after finishing Treichel's mesmerizing tale, I was struck by how perfect an allegory it is of the division and reunification of East and West Germany, with the snarling of red tape interfering with the recognition of human fraternity....The narrator's voice...won't let you go as it draws you into its labyrinth of absurdity....[A] brilliant tragicomic story...."

Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York Times, 10/21/1999

Review:

"Treichel writes in endless, relentless paragraphs, reminiscent of the great and meandering Austrian writer Thomas Bernhard. But although the obsessive nature of his parents' search for Arnold leads them in Bernhardian circles, the young boy tells his story in the straightforward, if quirky, manner of a monologue by Christopher Durang or, at times, Eugene Ionesco....With this single voice and focus, LOST feels more like a short story than a novel with subplots and baggy complexity."

Jonathan Levy, Los Angeles Times Book Review, 10/17/1999
