Reviews

With irresistible directness and delicacy, Javier Cercas engages in a quick-witted, tender quest for truth and the possibility of reconciliation in history, in our everyday lives - which happens to be the theme of most great European fiction . . . a marvellous novelThis is a masterly parable of political violence, of suffering, but also, and decisevely, of the strange logic of compassion and healing . . . should become a classicHe has succeeded, with one perfectly crafted book, in single-handedly redeeming the epic genreA truly wonderful, magnificent novel. It is understanding, intelligent, compassionate . . . If you were required to read only one book about Spain and its civil war, this should be that book. - Scotsman.This is an important, fresh and original book ... Above all, it demonstrates how eloquent and exciting fiction is still capable of being. - Irish TimesVery few novels have the power to alter received opinion, but this marvellous book may well be one . . . A remarkable book. - Sunday Telegraph
