Unfortunately, however, he is aided in his quest by Alex, a translator with an uncanny ability to mangle English into bizarre new forms; a 'blind' old man haunted by memories of the war; and an undersexed guide dog named Sammy Davis Jr, Jr. What they are looking for seems elusive - a truth hidden behind veils of time, language and the horrors of war.

Our customer reviews

I thought this book was incredible! I had certain expectations and assumptions about the story from a short glimpse of the movie but could not even begin to fully appreciate it until reading the book from start to finish. The story was incredibly funny, beautiful and sad. Everything you could want from a novel.show more
