Read full description of the books De rechterhand van de slaap:John Wray's stunning 2001 debut may be better than the more well-known "Lowboy," and that would no easy feat. Right Hand evokes so much individual humanity, from so many individual characters that one cannot help but be repeatedly amazed, while completely engaged in the lives of the hero, those being swept up in the advent of fascism in Austria, and those sweeping in that advent, to some extent.
And all that comes after some of the most incredible war scenes I've read in my life. The horrors of WW I in northern Italy are evoked in a clear-headed, yet passion, cringe-filled manner.
Alas, the latter part of the book, where the poetry takes over as the slow horror of fascism takes hold, is a bit too prescient in regard to some political waves currently flowing in the US, and elsewhere. That might make the book more necessary than it was when it was published 14 years ago.
And, yeah, I'm wondering why it has been so long since Wray published a book. The two I've read are simply among the best of this era.
