‘[A] harrowing portrayal of organised slaughter... it explores the existential dilemmas that come with being Swiss - a more interesting topic than you might imagine... Magnificent’



One Hundred Days is written in the spare, distilled language that befits its task, never sensational and never squeamish... It is an unflinchingly political novel that brings across its devastating message without making any narrative compromises’

‘His writing is seriously good, dramatising horrific events in illuminating ways’ Peter Carty
