Product Description:

Homecoming (translation) by Schlink, Bernhard (germany)

Review:

"Praise for THE READER: "
"A formally beautiful, disturbing, and finally morally devastating novel. From the first page, "The Reader" ensnares both heart and mind."
--"Los Angeles Times
""A masterly work... The reviewer's sole and privileged function is to say as loudly as he is able, 'Read this' and 'Read it again.'"
--George Steiner

"From the Hardcover edition."

"Homecoming", "fueled by a mystery, is also a powerful meditation on justice, history, and the nature of evil. . . . Schlink has written another lean, meticulously structured, disquieting thought-provoker." --"Los Angeles Times ""A beguilingly oblique novel. . . . Despite its intricate, maze-like progression, Homecoming has surprising narrative thrust." --"The Economist""Sensitive and disturbing. . . . The reader's mind opens to the story like a plant unfurling its leaves to the sun." --"The New York Times Book Review""Plot twists and surprises and sometimes outright lies complicate the book's multilayered homecoming theme. . . . Schlink has woven a homecoming tale as fascinating as Homer's "Odyssey", its inspiration." --"Seattle Times"
