I'd second Danube. It's dense but rewarding. I was a little less enamored with Microcosms, which seemed like more of the same. He's a great stylist. His scope of the world might prevent him from winning, but if he did, I would welcome it. As for the Eurocentric criticism, well, the academy is, too, and anyway Magris focuses mainly on the small, forgotten stories from areas around him, from people who don't really have a cultural identity or at least call that notion into question. He sounds right up their alley to me.
