Staff Reviews


Winner of the 2017 Prix Goncourt - France's highest literary honor - this recit/autofiction reads like a novel but reveals a historian's keen eye and sweeping scope. Recounting the annexation of Austria by Nazi Germany through two specific days, Vuillard shows how the small, everyday decisions of power-hungry and unscrupulous people slowly turn into catastrophe.  A subtly socialist history with surprising heat and heart underneath the dry tone, this is my antidote to the spate of hastily-throw-together books that question how we got to here, politically.
