Exterminate all the Brutes, by Sven Lindqvist
“[Sven Lindqvist’s] methods create a very personal perspective, weaving documentary and literary elements into a complex, joint narrative which will deepen the psychological impact of the often horrifying historical details he relates.”
A great review of Exterminate All the Brutes by David A James of The Ester Republic.
i first read this book three years ago and i’ve been captivated since. the author’s integration of history, psychology, and personal past is seamless and really connects me to the story. lindqvuist’s writing contains many strata and each layer is packed with perfectly, carefully chosen adroitness that fills up my soul and helps me question in an honest way. it’s nice to read again and see my old notes.
