    New York: Harper Collins, (2009.) dj. Hardcover first edition - The author's acclaimed debut novel, winner of the 2006 Prix Goncourt in France. From the dust jacket : "The fictional memoir of Dr. Max Aue, a former SS intelligence officer, who has reinvented himself as a family man and owner of a lace factory in post-war France. Max is an intellectual steeped in philosophy, literature, and classical music. He is also a cold-blooded assassin and the consummate bureaucrat, who speaks out now not in self-justification but to set the record straight. He looks back at his life with cool-eyed precision: from a disrupted childhood and a turning point in his student days, to his role as observer and then participant in Nazi atrocities on the Eastern Front, from Poland to the Caucasus; he is present at the siege of Stalingrad, at the death camps, and finally caught up in the rout of the Nazis and the nightmarish fall of Berlin.Although Max is a totally imagined character, his world is peopled by real historical figures such as Eichmann, Himmler, Goring, Speer, Heydrich, Hoss, and Hitler himself" . Described by Le Figaro as 'a monument of contemporary literature' and by Le Monde as a "staggering triumph." Although Littell was born in New York of American parents, he was raised and educated in France, and this novel has been translated from the original French by Charlotte Mandell. Glossary. 983 pp plus a list of German ranks. ISBN: 9780061353451.
