Untitled
While this novel is influenced by Hemingway's time as an ambulance driver in Italy during WW1, it is only partially a war story. It's much more extraordinarily ordinary than that. That's what gets you in the guts. That's what kills you. You think it's all going one way, and sure, it's a dark way, and you're prepared for it … but then it doesn't go that way. The ordinary-ness of the tragedy kills. - Jeremy (QBD)
