A Country Road, a Tree  free pdf From the best-selling author of"Longbourn, "a stunning new novel that follows an unnamed writer--Samuel Beckett--whose life and extraordinary literary gift are permanently shaped in the forge of war. When war breaks out in Europe in 1939, a young, unknown writer journeys from his home in neutral Ireland to conflict-ridden Paris and is drawn into the maelstrom. With him we experience the hardships yet stubborn vibrancy at the heart of Europe during the Nazis' rise to power- his friendships with James Joyce and other luminaries- his quietly passionate devotion to the Frenchwoman who will become his lifelong companion- his secret work for the French Resistance and narrow escapes from the Gestapo- his flight from occupied Paris to the countryside- and the rubble of his life after liberation. And through it all we are witness to workings of a uniquely brilliant mind struggling to create a language that will express his experience of this shattered world. Here is a remarkable story of survival and determination, and a portrait of the extremes of human experience alchemized into timeless art."
