'There is something of a nightmarish quality in Timm's powerful memoir of the elder brother he lost in the war ... The tone throughout is tender but unsentimental. And in the hands of Timm, now a distinguished writer, this domestic drama serves as a microcosm of the German catastrophe' Sunday Telegraph 'This remarkable short book combines a poignant memoir of Timm's upstanding, resourceful father and his loyal, peaceable mother with a perceptive analysis of the traditional values that helped to lead a nation to obey inhuman orders' Sunday Times 'This book is informed by a deep understanding of its horrors, anxieties and legacies' Publishers Weekly 'Uwe Timm, a well-known novelist in Germany, is determined "not to smooth it all out in the telling", not to make it easy for us to understand and thereby to excuse' Daily Telegraph
