Aranzazu Usandizaga and Andrew Monnickendam, eds. 2007: Back to Peace. Reconciliation and Retribution in the Postwar Period. Notre Dame, Indiana: U of Notre Dame P. i-viii+ 312 pp. ISBN 978-0-268-04452-7. The interest in English speaking countries, in particular Great Britain and the United States, in issues related to the two world wars is made manifest in the profusion of novels, as well as historical and cultural studies, that are published week after week and granted the best-selling aisles in bookshops across both countries. Not only is the post-WW2 period taken as a watershed supposed to open a new historical and literary era, but also the two World Wars are being studied increasingly as the thematic source for fiction inspired on them. Novels based on the 1914-1945 period that have met with both critical and public accolades in the last couple of decades include Martin Amis's Time's Arrow (1991), Pat Barker's Regeneration trilogy (1991-1995), Robert Harris's Enigma (1995), Anthony Beevor's Stalingrad (1998), Sebastian Faulks's Birdsong (1994) and Charlotte Gray (2000), Kazuo Ishiguro's The Remains of the Day (1989) and When We Were Orphans (2000), Ian McEwan's Atonement (2001), or William Boyd's Restless (2006). The selection, while obviously limited, does indicate the varied literary techniques, genres and themes that authors explore, from magical realism to historicism, spy-novel to biography. For the literary researcher, however, it is the different narrative techniques that attract the highest interest, since we encounter violent disruptions not only of characterisation and time-line but also of the narrative voice and even the very frame that separates fiction from reality.
