This novel tells the story of a family from the Slovenian minority in Austria. The first-person narrator starts off with her childhood memories of rural life, in a community anchored in the past. Yet behind this rural idyll, an unresolved conflict is smouldering. Gradually the stories that the adults tell start to make sense. Illuminating an almost forgotten chapter of European history and the European present, Angel of Oblivion deals with family dynamics scarred by war, all told in Maja Haderlap's lyrical prose.
