One of those who manages to be both highly regarded for fiction writing and being a physician (we have a few of those this month, with Chaya Bhuvaneswar here October 24), Daniel Mason makes this welcome Elliott Bay return to read from his beautiful new novel, The Winter Soldier (Little, Brown).
"Part mystery, part war story, part romance, The Winter Soldier is a dream of a novel -- impeccably researched and totally immersive. The unsinkable Margarete is a mesmerizing character, and the book's investigation into the psychiatric toll of war on its combatants could not be more timely. This novel convinces you with every sentence." —Anthony Doerr.
"So real, so rich and detailed, that the room in which I was reading vanished. I was transported to a lost world of the past. Suspenseful, thrilling, aching with emotion. Living with Lucius and Margarete, it was the First World War as I have never felt it."—Andrew Sean Greer.
Daniel Mason’s earlier novels are The Piano Tuner and A Far Country.
