Nobel Prize Vinner Relates Story
Vith Istanbul Prison Background
A compassionate tale of despair mailers and murderers.
and obsession, a suspenseful storv
of colorful people and places, is
"Devil's Yard" by lvo Andric,
translated by Kenneth Johnstone.
lvo Andric is a Yugoslav novel
ist, poet, essayist and short story
writer, who won the Nobel Prize
for Literature in 1961. This is his
first novel to be published in the
United States since then..
Curious Victory
In Devil's Yard, Andric tells the
story of a man defeated by destiny
before his life had begun, yet
snatching a curious victory from
the jaws of fate. His mysterious
tale is set in an Istanbul prison
compound known to , its inmates
and guards as Devil's Yard. It is
a teaming world of human suffer
ing, peopled by a motley crowd of
house-breakers and pickpockets,
swindlers and drug addicts, black-
Here Brother Petar, a Bosnian
monk, learns the strange and mov
ing story of the young Smyrna no
bleman, Djamil, who is cursed by
a destiny which links him to that
of an ill-starred Sultan of many
centuries ago.
The pages of "Devil's Yard"
abounds with beautifully etched
and diverse characters, detailed
with precision. There is the forger
who amuses everyone with his stor
ies of misfortune in love and mar
riage; the Smyrna Jew, garrulous
and complaining, an endless source
of fact and rumor about his fel
low prisoners; and there is the
yard's chief warden, a ruthless
martinet whose attraction to a
life of crime in his youth makes
him a fierce and unforgiving per
secutor of the unfortunates under
his rule.

Devil's Yard" is a modern par
able with many levels of meaning.
Its beauty and polished perfection
will give it an enduring place in
the literature of our time.
Of Contemporary Rom
Another translation, "So It
Goes," by Guiseppe Cassieri, is a
witty and fast-moving novel that
introduces the reader to a very
different view of contemporary
Rome, a Rome whose spanking
modernity covers much of its ba
roque face, a city full of stream
lined monks, psychosomatic-minded
medicos, medieval quacks and
glossy, futuristic ones.
It is the hilarious story of Olim
pio Speradio, a young Italian bu
reaucrat, who loses his head when
he tries to retain his hair. In his
desperate quest to save the sav
able, Olimpio finds t:iat he must
contend with the phantoms of his
fancy, the tacit scorn of his ex
hllaratingly . intact and beautiful :
mistress, and the annoying encum
brances of a job in one of those
flimsy ethereal organizp tions which
provide Italian intellectuals with
palpable paychecks and impalpa
ble problems.
Condemned by circumstances lo
a course of silence, exile and cun
ning, Olimpio plunges into a fan
tastic underworld in which he
learns that vanity can also become
tormenting, obsessive runtime
job. He finally quits, but only after
he has paid the supreme price.
