The Way Back
|Author:||Erich Maria Remarque; Brian Murdoch (Translator)|
The sequel to All Quiet on the Western Front, one of the most powerful novels of the First World War and a twentieth-century classic.
The men who survived the horror of the Western Front endured unimaginable violence and the loss of their innocence - they were the lucky ones. How do they return home? Young, spirited Ernst is one. Finding himself inexplicably returned to his childhood bedroom, chafing, restless, he attempts to resurrect his life. If All Quiet on the Western Front was a lament for lost generation, this sequel speaks with the same resonant voice for those who came back.
The is a new definitive English translation by expert Remarque-translator Brian Murdoch.
