Praise

“[An] astonishingly frank memoir of self-discovery and self-loathing.” –The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Says as much about the events in Normandy in 1944 as do many of the far weightier texts that it can honorably sit beside.”
The Economist

“What Giesbert does well in his work . . . is to instill his prose with the haunting that forever chases the abused child, long after that child becomes an adult.” –Rocky Mountain News

“This dark story, in the tradition of Maupassant, is a miracle: gaiety, imagination, the drive to understand, and also tenderness. . . . It has perhaps never been better show how war continues long after its end and is spread from father to son.” –Le Nouvel Observateur
