Product Details

Praise

“Arrives like a fresh, why-haven’t-we-known-him discovery, revealing Philippe Claudel
to be as dazzling on the page as he is on the screen.”–The New York Times
 
“Extraordinary. . . . [A] modern masterpiece.”—The Independent, London 
 
“A haunting, intensely claustrophobic allegory about intolerance, trauma and guilt.”–San Francisco Chronicle
 
“A layered recollection of wartime crimes, atrocities, cowardice, and betrayal.”—The Boston Globe

“Claudel’s insightful prose, translated gracefully by John Cullen, renders the tale both literary and deeply philosophical.”—Washington City Paper
 
“This is a remarkable novel, all the more so because this account of man’s inhumanity to man, of coarse and brutal stupidity, of fear and surrender to evil, is nevertheless not without hope. Brodeck survives because, despite all he has experienced, he remains capable of love. It is also beautifully written.”—The Scotsman
 
“This novel, like the brothers Grimm fables, is full of terror, horror, and beauty and wonder.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“Philippe Claudel is at the peak of his art as a storyteller and portrait-painter.”
—Elle (France)
 
“It is a relentless, uncomfortable book that achieves a beauty of its own through Claudel’s deft writing and passionate commitment to truth.”—The Times, London
