About this title:

Synopsis: In January 1945, in the waning months of World War II, a small group of people begin the longest journey of their lives: an attempt to cross the remnants of the Third Reich, from Warsaw to the Rhine if necessary, to reach the British and American lines.

Among the group is eighteen-year-old Anna Emmerich, the daughter of Prussian aristocrats. There is her lover, Callum Finella, a twenty-year-old Scottish prisoner of war who was brought from the stalag to her family’s farm as forced labor. And there is a twenty-six-year-old Wehrmacht corporal, who the pair know as Manfred–who is, in reality, Uri Singer, a Jew from Germany who managed to escape a train bound for Auschwitz.

As they work their way west, they encounter a countryside ravaged by war. Their flight will test both Anna’s and Callum’s love, as well as their friendship with Manfred–assuming any of them even survive.

Perhaps not since The English Patient has a novel so deftly captured both the power and poignancy of romance and the terror and tragedy of war. Skillfully portraying the flesh and blood of history, Chris Bohjalian has crafted a rich tapestry that puts a face on one of the twentieth century’s greatest tragedies–while creating, perhaps, a masterpiece that will haunt readers for generations.

Book Description New York City, NY: Shaye Areheart Books/Random House, 2008. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 372 pages. Published in 2008. The author's twelfth novel. One of the most important literary events of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Chris Bohjalian's "Skeletons At The Feast". Represents a major departure for Chris Bohjalian, who is noted for his acute ability to capture the "seismic" import of the small instant. His first full-fledged historical novel. His publisher has compared it to Michael Ondaatje's "The English Parient". "Paints the brutal landscape of Nazi Germany as German refugees struggle westward ahead of the advancing Russian army. Inspired by the unpublished diary of a Prussian woman who fled in 1945, the novel exhumes the ruins of spirit, flesh, and faith that accompanied thousands of such desperate journeys. Bohjalian's well-chosen descriptions capture the anguish of a tragic era and the dehumanizing desolation wrought by war" (Publishers Weekly). "Chris Bohjalian has written his finest novel to date, set against the brutal, waning days of World War Two. Bohjalian's masterpiece, the power of the narrative will stay with the reader long after it is put down. It will stand as one of the best novels ever written about one of the most brutal periods in history" (Marvin Minkler). An absolute "must-have" title for Chris Bohjalian collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Chris Bohjalian. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Bohjalian's signature on this copy is one of the most beautiful we have ever seen. This title is now collectible. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER CHRIS BOHJALIAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0307394956. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 13362
