Review: The Song Before it is Sung
The Song Before it is Sung by Justin Cartwright
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I can't recall who left the country and passed this on to me, but it was fantastic. It looks at what it means to live according to your principles and with courage by examining the strain caused between two Oxford friends, one a German and the other an English Jew, by WWII. Equally interesting is watching the narrator, a sort-of journalist in a disintegrating marriage use this research project to find his own path.
