8 books to read: May 2020.


1.The novel “Indigo” about children with indigo syndrome and Austrian political taboos is the work of Austrian writer Clemens J. Setz.

In the European project Hena coma called Europe from the inside and outside, the turn came to one relatively younger Austrian writer (year of birth 1982), Clemens Johann Setz. His fourth 2012 Indigo novel. In the meantime, he has written and published more novels, testifying that this is a prolific author (otherwise a playwright and translator) who enrolled in his native Graz to study mathematics and German studies. “Indigo” is another in a series of contemporary novels in which the authors contrast their own biography with a fair amount of unrestricted and rather disfigured fiction, in this case medical and psychological provenance. In this novel, we have the character of a young mathematics professor, Clemens Setz, who comes to work for half a year in the remote and mysterious Styrian Helianau Institute specializing in children with indigo syndrome. What kind of children are they? These are children who can inadvertently become very unpleasant to the environment. If people (including family members) get too close, they usually get very unpleasant headaches, dizziness and nausea. In short, these kids feel really bad.
Therefore, the more affluent parents of these children give their toddlers to the Institute (which is not, however, any kind of exclusively sadistic fortress guarded by cruel guards) but a place that is protocol-friendly to the Austrian Federal President. That place hides its secrets. When he tries to expose these secrets (about the relocation of lonely and unhappy children and their physical punishment and humiliation, and metaphorical sinister disguise), he finds an eloquent Clemens Setz, he gets expelled from the Institute with an embarrassing plum eye. However, his scientific nature cannot forget the indigo toddlers (in the case of this puberty puberty novel), so in his spare time he explores them further, traveling through the Austrian province, exploring their often tragic destinies, and the places of their relocation. In a somewhat thriller atmosphere, he tries to find out who is hiding behind the name Ferenz. Then he publishes more than remarkable extensive articles, almost studies in National Geographic. One of the places where his almost spy research job takes him is in the capital of a united Europe, hence the vague and greyish Brussels full of obscure clubs and even more obscure characters. In the Indigo novel, alongside Professor Setz’s case (whose health is impaired), there is the character of Robert Tatzel, a young protégé of the Helianau home. Fifteen years after the professor’s violent departure from the Tatzel Institute, it reads in the newspaper that Setz brutally killed a man who was living in the basement over his dogs. The court acquits him. Then the good-natured and sexually charged Robert (his girlfriend Cordula cheats on him with a friend) goes in search of a professor he obviously can’t forget. The professor approached him as a human being, not as an authoritative professor for a sick child over whom the international system is supposedly controlled.
The author of “Indigo” has enriched the novel with a series of documentary articles, newspaper excerpts, bizarre information about the only tree in the African desert, or about the only telephone booth in the American desert of Mojave. He writes about the Edison experiment that killed an elephant and the Soviet dog Shooter, which was launched into space (whose puppy was donated to US President Kennedy who spared it), though the CIA suggested that Shooter should be killed because the Soviets may have been in the dog. built-in microphones. It is written by the imaginative and obviously well-educated Clemens Setz about political taboos that are worth especially in Austrian society. It is clear that he is not only interested in children with indigo syndrome, but people with their disabilities and frustrations. So people with a sick or diseased psyche that can be treated in various ways, but the disease must be named, recognized and accepted. Because without that there is no cure. Clemens Setz writes extremely wisely.
