Praise

“This brief but bittersweet novel…left a lump in my throat.” —Baltimore Sun

“I doubt that there’s a reader who, after rocketing through this mesmerizing miniature of large implication, will not go back immediately to read it again.” —The New York Times

“Given the events of the last two months, Quint’s…parable about the often transitory and unpredictable nature of good and evil in wartime situations seemsespecially poignant and compelling…Readers won’t forget it.” —Publishers Weekly

“War, childhood, courage, memory…perfectly poised and moving…A jewel that warms the soul.”—Le Monde (France)

“A little gem of a book, tender and funny, that breaks your heart. Unforgettable.”—L’Express (France)

“The apparent simplicity of the writing…is deceptiveits density, its fusion of humour and tragedy, its economy of courage and farce, is the mark of a master.”—The Times (London)

“Magnificent.”—Elle (Italy)

“This book is admirable. A thousand times over…For the way it captures trials of conscience, about-turns, twists of fate.And what an ending.”—Journal du Dimanche

“A colorful, funny, poignant fable. Quint speaks of happiness, loyalty, friendship, he captures the humanity of characters whose dignity comes from their sense of what is right, from their humanity, their generosity. Give this to your loved ones, young and old, quickly”—Télérama
