A Novel

; Linda Coverdale (Oversetter)

«<b>Praise for <i>1914</i></b>:<br /><br />"Echenoz's nod to the powerlessness of ordinary people caught in the first great modern cataclysm is a veritable monument to human dignity."<br />Gary Indiana, <i>Bookforum</i><br /><br />"This new novel from Jean Echenoz- concentrates and synthesizes the quintessence of his writing."<br />—<i>Le Monde</i><br /><br /><b>Praise for Jean Echenoz</b>:<br />"One of the best storytellers among the 'serious' novelists of his generation."<br />—<i>Context</i><br /><br />"Echenoz is one of the contemporary literature’s rare graceful magicians. . . . He might easily be located in the post-human environs of Michael Houellebecq [and] Haruki Murakami."<br />—<i>Bookforum</i><br /><br />"A gentle tending to perversity links Echenoz to that other master of the perverse detail, Vladimir Nabokov."&»

Jean Echenoz turns his attention to the deathtrap of World War I in 1914. Five Frenchmen go off to war, two of them leaving behind young women who long for their return. But the main character in this brilliant novel is the Great War itself. Echenoz, whose work has been compared to that of writers as diverse as Joseph Conrad and Laurence Sterne, leads us gently from a balmy summer day deep into the relentless - and, one hundred years later, still unthinkable - carnage of trench warfare.
