Here unfolds an unbelievable alternative reaction to the horror of Nazi occupation in France. The words are like bells tolling toward an inexorable yet still unknown and possibly devastating ending. ( )

Short novella notable more for the circumstances of its publication than for its literary merit. Initially an invocation of passive resistance, it seques into a warning against the inherent viciousness of Nazism. Stokes' historical introduction is far more informative than Brown's literary introduction but the real interest of their 1991 version is the publication of Connelly's translation alongside Bruller's original French.

This book holds a special place in my heart because it was the first "real" book I read in French.
