The Sojourn (Kobo eBook)
The Sojourn evokes the WW1 classics by the British and German greats (Sasson, Blunden, Graves, Remarque, and Junger) at the same time that it joins the ranks of the best contemporary literature about war. The Sojourn is quieter and more contemplative, but no less powerful than Sebastian Junger’s War and Karl Marlantes Matterhorn, and as poetic as Cold Mountain and The English Patient.
This WW1 story is unusual in that it is set on the southern, Italian front.
The Sojourn is derived from the true story of Krivak's grandfather.
A story dealing with the great immigration to America, the "old country" and the desire to live the American dream in the beginning of the 20th century amid the unfolding tragedy in Europe of the first World War.
