Abstract:

May 1940. Hitler's armies crushed France. Peter Siderman, a young seventeen-year-old German committed to the French army, assumes the identity of a dead man to escape reprisals. Prisoner, he thinks he has avoided danger when he is told that he will be released and taken back to his family. How will he be welcomed by those people who do not know him? ... We find his prose rich in rejoicing metaphors, fantastic inventions, twists, unforgettable scenes described in a sensual and greedy language.--Translated by Gallimard.

"Mai 1940. Les armées de Hitler écrasent la France. Peter Siderman, un jeune Allemand de dix-sept ans engagé dans l'armée française, prend l'identité d'un mort pour échapper aux représailles. Prisonnier, il croit avoir évité le danger quand on lui annonce qu'on va le libérer et le reconduire dans sa famille. Comment sera-t-il accueilli chez ces gens qui ne le connaissent pas ? On sent passer ici le grand souffle à la fois tragique et merveilleux déjà présent dans le premier roman de Frédéric Verger. On retrouve sa prose riche en métaphores réjouissantes, en inventions fantasques, en rebondissements, en scènes inoubliables décrites dans une langue sensuelle et gourmande."--Page 4 of cover.
