  • The Order of the Day

    Eric Vuillard

    This dazzling novel (and last year’s winner of the Prix Goncourt) consists of vignettes of meetings in the Corridors of Power that led to the slide into war in 1939: German industrialists with Hitler; the Austrian Chancellor outmanoueuvred at the Berghof; Churchill and Chamberlain delayed at lunch by Ribbentrop as German tanks rolled over the border into Austria. Breathtaking for all its slimness.
