Belletristik / Gegenwartsliteratur (ab 1945)
';A tremendous second world war novel [with] striking, hallucinatory descriptions of the desert... A finely crafted debut.' Financial Times The Rider has no memory of who he is, where he is, or how he came to be lyingdyingin the brutal heat of the North African desert. Rescued by a band of deserters, the Rider begins to piece together his identity, based on shards of recollection and the letters in his mailbag. In the midst of profound trauma, terrible warfare, and the nameless experience of desertion, this gripping story of World War II asks us to consider how men build hope when they have nothing leftnot even a name. Nominated for the Desmond Elliott Prize, The Letter Bearer was described by one of the competition's judges as ';an excellent and elegant novel written with patience and authority . . . Readers of Michael Ondaatje and Paul Bowles will find the landscape familiar, but no reader will ever forget the haunting and haunted story of this remarkable victim.' ';A beautifully written investigation into alienation, guilt and the will to survive... a gripping exploration of one man's travailsand through him, those of millions other men trapped in the terrible mechanism of war.' Independent
