Carolyn SeeDubravka Ugresic's novel -- if you care about language and how it fails and sometimes succeeds at defining the human condition -- approaches perfection. The translation, the handling of dialects and nuances of what is essentially the same language in five or six different versions, is masterly. The Ministry of Pain will put the fear of God -- or more likely man -- into you.
