“Simply astounding. . . . The Kindly Ones is unmistakably the work of a profoundly gifted writer.” — Time A literary prize-winner that has been an explosive bestseller all over the world, Jonathan Littell’s The Kindly Ones has been called “a brilliant Holocaust novel… a world-class masterpiece of astonishing brutality, originality, and force,” and “relentlessly fascinating, ambitious beyond scope,” by Michael Korda (Ike, With Wings Like Eagles). Destined to join the pantheon of classic epics of war such as Tolstoy’s War and Peace and Vasily Grossman’s Life and Fate, The Kindly Ones offers a profound and gripping experience of the horrors of World War II and the Holocaust.
Littell's epic tale of a reformed Nazi officer takes the form of a fictitious memoir that takes listeners on a journey from Poland to the Ukraine and through some of the most notorious events in world history as seen from a Nazi perspective. Grover Gardner gives an unforgettable performance as Dr. Max Aue, a closeted homosexual and rising star in the SS. Gardner's intensity and passion force listeners to identify with Aue in all his torment and brutality. It's an uncomfortable, unforgettable, and transformative experience. A Harper hardcover (Reviews, Dec. 8, 2008).
