Winner of the 2004 Michigan Literary Fiction Award for novel A haunting story of the power of death, the pain of loss, and the possibility of hope. "Gripping, damning, and transfixing."--"Entertainment Weekly " ... possesses a time-bending gravity. ... [A] small classic of graceful language and earned emotion." "--San Francisco Chronicle ." . . a beautifully written novel of war and the wrenching grief and unanswerable questions it leaves in its wake. ... "A Century of November is full of precise, startling imagery and elegant, richly poetic description---Wetherell seems genuinely incapable of writing a lazy sentence---and this last section of the novel is as surreal, hypnotic and harrowing as any literature in recent memory. The whole thing, in fact, is a jewel, an unforgettable historical novel that Wetherell has carefully (and artfully) seeded with loads of contemporary resonance."--"Star-Tribune (Minneapolis) "A poignant, probing story. ... Wetherell's prose and character writing are unflinching ... [and his] take on a parent's anguish is deeply moving."--"Publishers Weekly " "A timely reminder of the devastation of mortal combat. . . ."----"Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Good book about WW1, about feelings and first days after war.
