The Wherewithal : A Novel in Verse, Paperback / softback Book

The Wherewithal : A Novel in Verse Paperback / softback


This astonishing novel in verse tells the story of a haunted young man hiding from the Vietnam War in the basement of a San Francisco building and translating his mother's diaries.

The diaries concern the Jedwabne massacre that took place in Poland in 1941.

Wildly inventive, dark, beautiful and unrelenting, The Wherewithal is a meditation on the nature of evil and the destruction of war.
