  • A Whole Life, Robert Seethaler
    Farrar, Straus and Grioux/Macmillan, 9780374289867, September 13, 2016 (Fiction)

    A Whole Life is an elegant, compact, and atmospheric tale of a life in the Alps, of time passing, of changing times, of loss and love and war. The writing is precise and the mood intense. It is the perfect book for a quiet, rainy day with a cup of tea.”

    Pete Mulvihill, Green Apple Books (San Francisco, CA)

    A Whole Life is a beautifully written account of one life that also highlights the sacredness of each and every life. I’m not sure I have the words to describe this amazing book, but I can’t recommend it highly enough.” 

    Valerie Welbourn, Novels & Novelties Bookstore (Hendersonville, NC)

    “Andreas’ humility and humanity in A Whole Life stresses the universality of man. Nature in all its glory is a perfect backdrop for this tale, which at times reads like a parable. Andreas meets interesting characters along his journey. There is a feeling of peacefulness in the storytelling.” 

    Sarajane Giddings, Blue Door Books (Cedarhurst, NY)
