Four FreedomsBook - 2009
"So rich and so evocative and so authentic." --Tom Brokaw, author of The Greatest Generation
"John Crowley is a virtuoso of metaphor, a peerless recreator of living moments, of small daily sublimities." --New York Times Book Review
From the critically acclaimed author of Lord Byron's Novel and The Translator comes a novel set in World War II America that follows the stories of a group of aircraft factory workers--in particular, the enigmatic figure of draftsman Prosper Olander. Named one of the Best Books of 2009 by the Washington Post, Four Freedoms is a beautifully crafted story of liberation and redemption from an author who has been compared to Robertson Davies, Thomas Mann, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
