review Estoril ratni roman

U Među njima su se našli špijuni svih zaraćenih strana avanturisti diplomate vagabundi bivši kraljevi sirotani i bogataši – sve do porodica Rotšild i HabzburgGlavni jugoslovenskisrpski lik je dvostruki tajni agent koji bi se mogao ovako predstaviti „Zovem se Popov Duško Popov“ Asocijacija na Džejmsa Bonda je ispravna – to je istorijska ličnost čovek po kojem je Jan Fleming stvorio lik o Džejmsu Bondu Reč je o nemačko britanskom dvostrukom agentu koji je imao jednu od najvažnijih uloga u događajima pred japansko bombar. Famed for its beautiful sandy beaches Estoril is a fashionable Portuguese beach resort on the Iberian Peninsula During the Second World War its authoritarian pro fascist regime elected to remain neutral but continued to trade with the Allies and Nazi Germany making this picturesue area a haven for refugeesBased on true events Dejan Tiago Stankovi s comedic novel is set in the town s imposing Pal cio Estoril Hotel which is just west of Lisbon on the Portuguese Riviera It was built in 1930 and aesthetically it has changed little in the intervening years A great many displaced people stayed here in luxury between 1940 and 1945 among them secret agents diplomats stateless Jews novelists wealthy Yugoslavs and any number outcast aristocrats and royals in exile In conseuence the region became known as the Coast of Kings Estoril A War Novel is a hotchpotch of invented characters and historical figures the latter including the likes of Ian Fleming and Antoine De St Exupery all observed from a discreet distance by the Portuguese secret police who are keen to prevent espionage less it compromise their country s official impartiality Among the many staff residents and mysterious persons loitering in the lobby are the Pal cio s busy manager Mr Black nine year old Gaby a Hassidic Jew travelling alone and waiting for his parents to follow Senhor Cardoso a senior inspector and head of Estoril Unit of the PVDE the political police Mr Paderewski the once musically gifted and now former Prime Minister of Poland Ivan the double agent and oh so many From concierge to cook everyone has a tale to tell The author was born in the former Yugoslavia in 1965 and became an illegal immigrant in London during the 90s unable to return home for the duration of the Balkan conflict He writes in the author s preamble that he well knows how war feels even when you are out of danger The novel has at its heart his own experience of exile Estoril is all but impossible to summarize in one pithy sentence falling as it does into so many genres humour historic fiction war etc The best I can come up with is that it s a sort of combination between a James Bond setting an Ealing comedy a scene from The Grand Budapest Hotel a Tom Sharpe novel without the crudity and an episode of Allo Allo Helpful at allVery well since you insist it s a light and amusing spy story set in the golden age of the Riviera PortuguesaMany thanks to Head of Zeus for supplying an advance review copy of this title

Junak romana može biti i građevina„Estoril“ je čuveno letovalište kraj Lisabona koji je tokom Drugog svetskog rata zahvaljujući portugalskoj neutralnosti bio centar nekih od sudbinskih događaja po Evropu i svet ali i stecište najvažnijih poznatih i anonimnih aktera vekaNeposlušnost jednog portugalskog konzula spasla je smrti hiljade ljudi pred Hitlerovim nacizmom Tako je Lisabon kao tada najveći izbeglički logor za razliku od onih – koncentracionih privremeno udomio ljude svih nacionalnosti kako bi im obezbedio put za Amerik. This is wonderful historical fiction set in a supposedly neutral Portugal at the Grand Hotel Estoril during WW2 It captures significant aspects of the war the huge numbers rendered stateless a tide of refugees from Jews to those from the splintering Balkans members of the aristocracy and Royalty such as King Carol of Romania who has renounced his throne because of his mistress Elena The author blends actual historical figures with fictional characters The hotel is a positive nest of spies from numerous national intelligence agencies with Inspector Carduso a member of the Portuguese political police the PVDE tasked with keeping a close eye on the comings and goings of those who stay and ensure none of the foreigners infect locals with dangerous ideas such as democracy freedom or workers rights The narrative is full of comic humour focusing on what it is to live in exile the fears the tensions and the need to begin again in a new place There are political shifts as the war progresses with Salazar ostensibly keeping Portugal neutral but supporting the Nazi war effort by actions such as supplying Tungsten to Germany but stopping when it becomes clear who the likely victors areMuch of the story focuses on 10 year old Gaby a Hasidic Jew who arrives alone expecting his parents to join him later Gaby brings enough wealth in a variety of forms that ensures he is able to spend the remaining war years at the hotel playing a pivotal role for a number of guests such as King Carol and those employed at the Estoril who become his makeshift family keen to look after him Gaby is intelligent wise beyond his years curious about the world and people emotionally supported when he acuires a puppy Fennec Only the rich and famous can afford to stay at the Estoril but there are ears and eyes everywhere with listening devices and spies There are people with multiple identities and roles double and triple agents and communications in codes The Germans and the allies are desperate to gain intelligence that might help them swing the war their way An era is captured with all its turbulence of a time and place where guests visit casinos bars and brothels amidst the background of war families split apart tragedies and seismic political shifts in EuropeThe author weaves a compelling story that shifts from person to person from scenario to scenario keeping the reader engaged with ease Many of the tales are colourful vibrant poignant and delivered with an undeniable streak of humour throughout Much of the true brutality of what occurred is often hinted at than explicitly revealed At the heart of it all is a young boy Gaby forced to grow up before his time separated from his beloved parents and there is no guarantee they will survive the war This is a fantastic character driven historical fiction set in a hotel which sets the scene for us to glimpse the lives of so many and the situations they find themselves in An entertaining informative gripping and engrossing read which I recommend Many thanks to Head of Zeus for an ARC

    I was very keen to read this novel as the coastline between Lisbon and Sintra is my favourite place for holidays where the abandoned or ruined villas around Estoril seem so out of keeping with a thriving resort – and which form a testimony to the novel’s setting This era of Portuguese history has fascinated me ever since reading ‘Night Train to Lisbon’ although the version of the period portrayed here is light he
