Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for My Last Lament

"The Greek setting is far less traveled ground in the English-language World War II novel, and Brown's pacing is strong and engaging."—The New York Times

“A remarkable accomplishment, a long and circuitous tale of three young people, orphaned by WWII in Greece, and their struggles to survive the brutal and chaotic aftermath—a real Greek tragedy, full of wit, pathos, and poetry. I admit that I wept at the last page, and I thought, Oh, I reckon this must be catharsis!”—Dennis McFarland, author of Nostalgia 
 
“A Greek epic in its own right, My Last Lament is the story of a nation trying to live up to its past while struggling to come to terms with its present, and of the indomitable people surviving that struggle. Aliki is a vivid and fully-realized heroine, by turns both fragile and formidable, and her story is one that will keep readers quickly turning the pages even as they linger over Brown's lovely language. My Last Lament is a book I will never forget.”—Alyssa Palombo, author of The Violinist of Venice and The Most Beautiful Woman in Florence
 
“James William Brown’s brilliance and artistry as a storyteller woos, fascinates and utterly devastates in My Last Lament. If you loved All the Light We Cannot See, you will devour this novel; a heart-rending World War II story you’ve never heard and won’t soon forget.”—Susan Meissner, author of Secrets of a Charmed Life and A Bridge Across the Ocean

"Deftly drawn characters with their heart-wrenching quests makes this a gripping and illuminating tale.”—The Washington Times

"This is an astonishing novel, an imaginative feat of epic proportions. I was gripped from the first line. These characters! This story! Here is war and joy and terror and love and death and humor all mixed up, just as in life. I loved My Last Lament so much I kept shoving it in people’s faces, saying, 'This book! You have to read this book!'"—Anna Solomon, author of Leaving Lucy Pear and The Little Bride
