BookBalloon April Reading Club: Fortunes of War by Olivia Manning

Discussion begins April 2 at BookBalloon:

NYRB Classic: Fortunes of War: The Balkan Trilogy

Fortunes of War“The Balkan Trilogy is the story of a marriage and of a war, a vast, teeming, and complex masterpiece in which Olivia Manning brings the uncertainty and adventure of civilian existence under political and military siege to vibrant life. Manning’s focus is not the battlefield but the café and kitchen, the bedroom and street, the fabric of the everyday world that has been irrevocably changed by war, yet remains unchanged.” — New York Review of Books.

The discussion of the first volume of the trilogy will begin April 2 in the Forum.
