In the Memory of the Forest

In the Memory of the Forest - Charles T. Powers A fine novel -- well crafted and with a fully-realized, ambitious theme. It begins with a murder in the forest near a small Polish village, and that murder leads the reader (and the villagers) down the winding paths of memory to a moment when the Jews of the village disappeared so suddenly it might have been a supernatural act. Great writing here -- every sentence is vivid, each character utterly human. Highly recommended.
