Review:

"The thickness of detail and mastered research are...efficiently harnessed to Timm's theme: the devastating consequences of collisions between what are conventionally called civilization and primitivism. An intermittently slow read, but an important early work in the career of one of the best living German writers."

Kirkus, 01/15/2003

Review:

"[Timm's] fragmentary approach has great cumulative moral power, making us consider all sides of the story without forgetting that there were victims who deserve some remembrance. Whether MORENGA is entirely successful in literary terms is another matter: a lack of deep characterization...makes it quite difficult to make sense of. Yet that seems exactly the point, which is why MORENGA is so important. In the glare of genocide, everything else, including novelistic conventions..., comes to seem absurd....[S]ense alone is not enough for survival, and that is the haunting, disconcerting lesson of MORENGA. Like the Germans, Timm's novel takes few prisoners--and is all the more credible for it."

Giles Foden, New York Times Book Review, 04/20/2003
