The Verdun Affair by Nick Dybek
"The opening chapter was perfection, I literally sighed with joy reading it.
The descriptions of the war torn courtry and post-war life was truely haunting.
The reason for the 4/5 instead of 5/5: I was hoping for the portion of the story set in the 50" Read more of this review »

The Verdun Affair by Nick Dybek

Nick and 3 other people liked Leona's review of The Verdun Affair:
The Verdun Affair by Nick Dybek
"Wow. I can't remember the last book I read that did so many things so well. The plot is propulsive yet profound, sprawling yet tightly controlled. The prose is gorgeous--lyrical, precise, enormously evocative. And the narrator's voice is so complex--" Read more of this review »

“I should have known that at the root of any mystery that's all you find: people doing unspeakable harm to other people. What else on this earth is there to hide?”
Nick Dybek, When Captain Flint Was Still a Good Man

“I needed someone to talk to, but there was no one in particular I wanted to talk to. That's the best definition of loneliness I know.”
Nick Dybek, The Verdun Affair

“Il ne pouvait pas savoir qu'une vie entière était une triste chose, que c'était un pont entre deux mondes qui ne croyaient pas l'un en l'autre.”
Nick Dybek, The Verdun Affair
