9780140272819: In the Memory of the Forest

When the body of Tomek, a young distillery worker, is found brutally murdered in the forest outside Jadowia in Poland, his boyhood friend, Leszek, decides to uncover the mystery behind Tomek?s death. Assuming the role of amateur sleuth, Leszek embarks on a clue-finding mission that takes him from country to city, into the grimy offices of once-powerful bureaucrats, and face-to-face with the Catholic Church?s pious and impotent priests. And as Leszek moves closer to the truth, he is confronted with another strange mystery: the disappearance of stones from the foundations of the town?s oldest houses. The further Leszek is drawn into this mystery, the deeper into the past he must search for answers about his people, the grim tragedy of the Holocaust, and ultimately, his own identity.In the Memory of the Forest is a haunting, evocative novel that explores the impact of a murder on a community, and of history and the fate of the Jews in Poland during World War II on a people.

Review:

Even in the days after the collapse of Communism, the Poland of Charles Powers's novel is an "old country in an old Europe," a place that harbors the stories and secrets of a complex and tortured history. When a young farmer named Leszek starts looking into the unexplained murder of a childhood friend in his small hometown of Jadowia, he is led into a dark terrain, and begins to uncover difficult truths about war crimes committed by members of his own family. It's a complex, literary detective story, rendered in precise, jewel-like prose. Powers, who died in 1996, knows whereof he speaks: a journalist for the Los Angeles Times for more than twenty years, he served as the paper's Eastern European bureau chief from 1986-1991.

About the Author:

Charles T. Powers (1943-1996) was a journalist for The New York Times for more than twenty years. A former Nieman Fellow at Harvard University, he served as the newspaper?s Eastern European Bureau Chief in Warsaw. For the last five years of his life, he lived in Bennington, Vermont, where he completed this novel.

Descripción Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 1998. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. When the body of Tomek Powierza, a young distillery worker, is found in the forest outside Jadowia, Leszek, a young farmer, seeking to expand his family s holdings, decides to uncover the truth surrounding the death. Meanwhile, Communism has receded from Europe; and Poland, like other countries, is struggling to rebuild its economy and society. Against this backdrop of a culture in transition Leszek becomes an amateur sleuth, gathering clues. His investigation leads him to confront the former state apparatchiks and the Church s pious and impotent priests. A series of strange thefts - stones from the foundations of old houses - may or may not be connected to Tomek s murder. As Leszek moves closer to the truth he realizes that larger forces - ancient prejudices and blood feuds - are ultimately at the root of this mystery. He recognizes, too, that the answer to the puzzle will be found in the dark woods that sprawl beyond the town, where the past and the present come together in the novel s surprising and powerful climax.
