Oblivion
 Nikos Vlantis

245pp.
Kedros, 2008
ISBN13: ISBN: 978-960-04-3670-9

A writer who is under the tyrannical rule of his literary model, Alexei Fyodorovich Karamazov, is obliged to deliver to him every day a predetermined number of manuscripts that will enhance his fame.
Oblivion is set in the bleak landscape of a frozen dystopia, which seems to be the product of artificial intelligence, something designed on a computer. Caught up in an extremely claustrophobic atmosphere, the hero gradually loses his own personality. Nikos Vlantis deploys a rich imagination to create a novel that flirts with postmodernism without ever surrendering to it completely. The story brings into question not only the role of the writer but also the nature of the worlds that the writer creates. It explores the issues of identity and memory in a universe that is unstable and uncertain by its very nature.
