Inhaltsangabe: In this first English translation of Hyvernaud's novel, the narrator, who has come back to France after imprisonment in Germany, is preoccupied with the near impossibility of writing a novel about his experiences; at the same time, he attempts to function normally in a world that seems to have changed radically. The Cattle Car is devoid of heroics, portraying the protagonist as a man without a future, "the ordinary guy who moves quietly among objects, without making any sort of commotion", a man who daydreams other people's lives. In "Letter to a Little Girl", which precedes The Cattle Car, Hyvernaud writes openly to his daughter of his own five years of wartime imprisonment. "It is proper that at least once in his life each [man] really experience the world's cruelty. That he touch bottom", he writes, refusing pity. "It is a right that one has, the right to know how hard it is, how difficult and dangerous, to conduct the human adventure. Those who must be pitied are those who are protected from everything, who elude everything - the men with gloved hands". As he tries to explain what happened in wartime Europe, he concludes, "Human beings are like that, a mixture of good and bad.... Believe in man and believe in life".

Inhaltsangabe: In this first English translation of Georges Hyvernaud's autobiographical novel The Cattle Car, the narrator, who has come back to France after imprisonment in Germany, is preoccupied with the near impossibility of writing a novel about his experiences. At the same time, he attempts to function normally in a world that seems to have changed radically. Bouncing back and forth from the existential hell of postwar France to the truer one he endured during the war, the narrator works on his memoir, "The Cattle Car" while struggling as a laborer in a monotonous life lived amidst mediocre people.

The book also includes "Letter to a Little Girl," Hyvernaud's eloquent open letter to his daughter describing his wartime imprisonment.
