NOMINATING LIBRARY COMMENTS
A new form of narrative approach to realities of the inner world of man and his perception of external surroundings under the burden of personal tragedy brought about by war, and its utter brutality. Merging of subtle psychological analysis, minuscule study of material objects of human everyday existence and deep philosophical comprehension of the human lot makes this novel an outstanding piece of creative writing.
