Right Hand of Sleep by John Wray

Book Description

This extraordinary debut novel from Whiting Writers' Award winner John Wray is a poetic portrait of a life redeemed at one of the darkest moments in world history. Twenty years after deserting the army in the first world war, Oskar Voxlauer returns to the village of his youth. Haunted by his past, he finds an uneasy peace in the mountains-but it is 1938 and Oskar cannot escape from the rising tide of Nazi influence in town. He attempts to retreat to the woods, only to be drawn back by his own conscience and the chilling realization that the woman whose love might finally save him is bound to the local "SS" commander."" Morally complex, brilliantly plotted, and heartbreakingly realized, The Right Hand of Sleep""marks the beginning of an important literary career.
