I loved this short novel, which was only about 160 pages long - a good counterpoint to "Life and Fate," which wieghed in at 870 pages. "A Century of November" is a novel about a Canadian father's trip to Belgium, to see where his son died during WWI; it is a darkly beautiful story of despair and, ulitmately, hope. Its spare, wonderful prose and story reminded me of two other short novels that I greatly admire: Helen Humphreys' "The Lost Garden," and J. L. Carr's "A Month in the Country."
