This book is insane and great and very different from Satantango.

I guess I'm surprised by how personal it is compared with Satantango, which I thought was a very detached exercise in formal trickery (on top of a cool story). The formal trickery remains here (excerpts from scattered sources, chapters numbered by fibonacci sequence), but "Christo Morto" seems really obviously to be about Krasznahorkai himself, and the self-loathing and frustration underlying "Kamo Hunter" definitely don't come from a detached narrator, although it might be disguised as one. The settings of the book also seem more like places he'd be familiar with (both geographically and in the wilds of scholarship), rather than Satantango concentrating on poor farmers while Krasz. was a successful law student.

"Restoration of a Buddha" actually reminded me a lot of David Foster Wallace, esp. Oblivion and The Pale King, with the emphasis on tedium (though treated in a very different way).
