Women in a River Landscape; A Novel in Dialogues and Soliloquies

by Heinrich Boll, David McLintock (Translator)

Editorial Reviews

Vivian Gornick
''Women in a River Landscape'' is Boll's stripped and, as it turned out, final statement in the matter of German worldliness....''Women in a River Landscape'' is burdened by the difficulties inherent in a novel in dialogue. The translation seems faithful enough, but the prose is somewhat stilted, as the reader must be given information the characters would not normally give themselves or one another. Nevertheless, the writing bears the stamp of one of the most genuinely high-minded men of letters this century has produced, and the words spoken on those terraces above the Rhine remain memorable long after the book has been laid down. -- New York Times
