Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A teenage deserter from the Austro-Hungarian army during the First World War, Oskar Voxlauer returns to his home after nearly twenty years of exile in Communist Ukraine, only to find himself caught up once more in the growing political tensions and rising fascism in the area. A first novel.


Review:

"[A] taut, searing portrait of the effects of Nazism on the psychic and physical landscape of Austria....The clarity of Wray's prose style both belies and reveals the depth and scope of his concerns...."

Marcella Edwards, Literary Review, March 2001

Review:

"[S]tylistic lapses weaken Wray's otherwise tight web of small-town relationships."

Kevin Grandfield, Book, May/June 2001
