Description
Winner of the 2004 Michigan Literary Fiction Award for novel A haunting story of the power of death, the pain of loss, and the possibility of hope. "Gripping, damning, and transfixing." --- Entertainment Weekly " . . . possesses a time-bending gravity. . . . [A] small classic of graceful language and earned emotion." ---San Francisco Chronicle ". . . a beautifully written novel of war and the wrenching grief and unanswerable questions it leaves in its wake. . . . A Century of November is full of precise, startling imagery and elegant, richly poetic description---Wetherell seems genuinely incapable of writing a lazy sentence---and this last section of the novel is as surreal, hypnotic and harrowing as any literature in recent memory. The whole thing, in fact, is a jewel, an unforgettable historical novel that Wetherell has carefully (and artfully) seeded with loads of contemporary resonance." --- Star-Tribune (Minneapolis) "A poignant, probing story. . . . Wetherell's prose and character writing are unflinching . . . [and his] take on a parent's anguish is deeply moving." --- Publishers Weekly "A timely reminder of the devastation of mortal combat. . . ." --- Atlanta Journal-Constitution
