Inhaltsangabe: Winner ofthe Man Booker Prize
Nothing since Cormac McCarthy s The Road has shaken me like this. The Washington Post

From the author of the acclaimed Gould s Book of Fish, a magisterial novel of love and war that traces the life of one man from World War II to the present.

August, 1943: Australian surgeon Dorrigo Evans is haunted by his affair with his uncle s young wife two years earlier. His life, in a brutal Japanese POW camp on the Thai-Burma Death Railway, is a daily struggle to save the men under his command. Until he receives a letter that will change him forever.
A savagely beautiful novel about the many forms of good and evil, of truth and transcendence, as one man comes of age, prospers, only to discover all that he has lost."

"A novel of extraordinary power, deftly told and hugely affecting. A classic in the making . . . Masterful." --"The Observer"

""The Narrow Road to the Deep North" is a big, magnificent novel of passion and horror and tragic irony. Its scope, its themes and its people all seem to grow richer and deeper in significance with the progress of the story, as it moves to its extraordinary resolution. It's by far the best new novel I've read in ages." --Patrick McGrath, author of "Constance
"
"I loved this book. Not just a great novel but an important book in its ability to look at terrible things and create something beautiful. Everyone should read it." --Evie Wyld, author of "All the Birds, Singing

" "
"Flanagan has written a sort of Australian "War and Peace . . . "After setting down this eccentric masterwork of a novel, full of deep insight, afflicted love and cosmic passion alongside painful, even horrendous suffering, Flanagan's music still plays on and on in my head." --Alan Cheuse, NPR
"I suspect that on rereading, this magnificent novel will seem even more intricate, more carefully and beautifully constructed . . . Reminds me of Conrad . . . Worthy of Zola . . . This "Narrow Road to the Deep North "is both unforgiving and generous, a paradox that should earn it some fame of its own." --"New York Times Book Review"
"A masterpiece . . . A symphony of tenderness and love, a moving and powerful story that captures the weight and breadth of a life . . . A high point in an already distinguished career." --"The Guardian"

""The luminous imagination of Richard Flanagan is among the most precious of Australian literary treasures." "--Newcastle Herald
""In an already sparkling career, this might be his biggest, best, most moving work yet." "--Sunday Age (Melbourne)
"
"An unforgettable story of men at war . . . Flanagan's prose is richly innovative and captures perfectly the Australian demotic of tough blokes, with their love of nicknames and excellent swearing. He evokes Evans's affair with Amy, and his subsequent soulless wanderings, with an intensity and beauty that is as poetic as the classical Japanese literature that peppers this novel." --"The Times" (London)
"Extraordinarily beautiful, intelligent, and sharply insightful . . . Flanagan handles the horrifyingly grim details of the wartime conditions with lapidary precision and is equally good on the romance of the youthful indiscretion that haunts Evans." --"Booklist"
"Virtuosic . . . Flanagan's book is as harrowing and brutal as it is beautiful and moving . . . This deeply affecting, elegiac novel will stay with readers long after it's over." --"Shelf Awareness"
" "
"Devastating . . . Flanagan's father died the day this book was finished. But he would, no doubt, have been as proud of it as his son was of him." --"The Independent "(UK)
"Despite the novel's epic sprawl it retains the delicate vignettes that characterise Flanagan's work, those beautiful brush strokes of poignancy and veracity that remain in the reader's mind long afterwards."" --West Australian News
""Mesmerising . . . A profound meditation on life and time, memory and forgetting . . . A magnificent achievement, truly the crown on an already illustrious career." "--Adelaide Advertiser
