[EAN: 9780739327951], [PU: Random House Large Print], Fiction|Historical, Fiction|War & Military, This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "The perfect novel for a book club. . .this book sucked me right in. It's vivid and heart-wrenching." John Searles, The Today Show "Reading Bohjalian''s descriptions of terror and tragedy on the road has just as much impact as seeing newsreels from the end of World War II.While creating suspense, Bohjalian agilely balances the moral ambiguities of war.Right and wrong shift depending on the situation. Ignorance is tolerated and murder is justified. But Bohjalian does posit that one absolute exists: No one wins at war." Dennis Moore , USA Today "Harrowing. . .ingenious. . .compelling. . .Judging who''s right or wrong is difficult in Skeletons at the Feast , and one senses that''s just the way Bohjalian wants it. . .A tightly woven, moving story for anyone who thinks there''s nothing left to learn, or feel, about the Second World War. That Bohjalian can extract greater truths about faith, hope and compassion from something as mundane as a diary is testament not only to his skill as a writer but also to the enduring ability of well-written war fiction to stir our deepest emotions." Paula L. Woods , The Los Angeles Times "Harrowing. . .Bohjalian spins a suspenseful tale in which the plot triumphs over any single sorrow. . .[His] sense of character and place, his skillful plotting and his clear grasp of this confusing period of history make for a deeply satisfying novel, one that asks readers to consider, and reconsider, how they would rise to the challenge of terrible deprivation and agonizing moral choices." -- Margot Livesey, The Washington Post Book World "A poignant account of the conflict''s last year. . .Harrowing. . .In creating the Emmerichs and their relationship to Uri, Bohjalian has given us something new and disturbing. He has also created a wonderful character in the protected child, Theo, whose gradual understanding of what is happening to them is moving and real. . .Bohjalian has given us an important addition to the story of World War II, and, not at all incidentally, may expand the vision of those who may have avoided ''Holocaust literature'' in the past." Roberta Silman, The Boston Globe "Rich in character and gorgeous writing." Jodi Picoult, Real Simple "Bohjalian has shown a prodigious gift for exploring how people are transformed." Entertainment Weekly "Chris Bohjalian has done it again! His latest novel, Skeletons at the Feast . is more than well worth the read . Along this journey we not only see the horrors of the war unfold, we see the individuals evolve." The Valley Voice "A bittersweet story of romance, war and death, inspired in part by a real diary. . .Strongly dramatic and full of the heartbreaking horror of war, this novel is Bohjalian at his imaginative best." Carole Godlberg, The Hartford Courant " Skeletons at the Feast is a prime example of a well-written historical fiction. Readers will feel the despair experienced by the characters but will be able to find the bit of hope that keeps them moving forward. Bohjalian provides a vivid and well-researched look at the horrors experienced by the characters and presents a more personal account of anguish caused by the events of World War II." Courtney Holschuh, The Huntington, W.V. Herald-Dispatch "Intense and fascinating. . .Bohjalian masterfully presents the desperation of troops who realize their cause is doomed. . .He successfully captures the humanity of one of the 20th century''s most horrendous tragedies." The Rocky Mountain News "This story mixes the nail-biting brutality of ''The Kite Runner'' with the emotional intimacy of Anne Frank''s diary." Austin American-Statesman "An extraordinary historical novel based on the exodus of Germans in eastern Germany escaping the Soviet Army''s advance in the waning days of World War II. . . A sense of justice pervades all of [Bohjalian''s''] books. He demands that we act humanely toward one another and understand

In his previous novel, The Double Bind, Oprah's Book Club honoree Chris Bohjalian commandeered characters from The Great Gatsby to create another seductive West Egg treasure. In Skeletons at the Feast, he draws on an unpublished World War II diary to accomplish an equally ambitious transformation.

The fiction re-creates the fitful westward flight of a Prussian aristocrat, her children, and their Scottish POW servant in the waning months of the war. As this unlikely group desperately flees the advancing Russian troops, they befriend an even more unlikely protector: a young Jew who somehow had escaped from an Auschwitz-bound train. Bohjalian counterpoints this tense trek with a parallel narrative about hundreds of Jewish women struggling to survive a pitiless forced march from a death camp. Gripping details; unforgettable snapshots of the horrors of war.

ID: 5338936

In January 1945, in the waning months of World War II, a small group of people begin the longest journey of their lives: an attempt to cross the remnants of the Third Reich, from Warsaw to the Rhine if necessary, to reach the British and American lines.Among the group is eighteen-year-old Anna Emmerich, the daughter of Prussian aristocrats. There is her lover, Callum Finella, a twenty-year-old Scottish prisoner of war who was brought from the stalag to her family's farm as forced labor. And there is a twenty-six-year-old Wehrmacht corporal, who the pair know as Manfred-who is, in reality, Uri Singer, a Jew from Germany who managed to escape a train bound for Auschwitz.As they work their way west, they encounter a countryside ravaged by war. Their flight will test both Anna's and Callum's love, as well as their friendship with Manfred-assuming any of them even survive. Perhaps not since The English Patient has a novel so deftly captured both the power and poignancy of romance and the terror and tragedy of war. Skillfully portraying the flesh and blood of history, Chris Bohjalian has crafted a rich tapestry that puts a face on one of the twentieth century's greatest tragedies-while creating, perhaps, a masterpiece that will haunt readers for generations.From the Hardcover edition. contemporary,genre fiction,historical,historical fiction,literature and fiction,war Historical Fiction, Random House Large Print
