Summary
Brodeck is instructed to write an account of the events leading up to a stranger's death, but his report delivers much more than the bare facts: it becomes the story of a life and a village coming to terms with the legacy of occupation by enemy forces

Originally published as Le Rapport de Brodeck: Paris : Editions Stock, 2007. -The report that Brodeck is writing into the lynching of an artist, an outsider, a flamboyant Other figure who has deeply disturbed the fragile equilibrium of the town he briefly settled in, becomes a report into the catastrophe of his own life. Brodeck, it seems, himself also an outsider, has lately returned from a concentration camp. In the course of his investigation into the death of the artist, he uncovers the truth about his distant origins, about his having been rounded up when the Germans came to the town, and all that happened to his family when he was gone. This immensely powerful chronicle of a community's fear and loathing of what is strange, what is from the outside, has been hailed as one of the outstanding European novels of the last decade
