I do believe that Flemish author Erwin Mortier has found one in the memories of an old Belgian woman who just happened to be on holiday at the other side of the front when war broke out It is a dense often obliue book richly translated from the Dutch by Paul Vincent that puts the literary back into literary fiction Get rid of that horrid plastic dust cover and you will feel a solid book in your hands beautifully printed containing words th
