THE SICK FOX

A novel set in postwar Germany in which a young American counterintelligence agent named Harry Brace, who is charged with watching over security at an underground nuclear storage site, tries to protect a nomadic shepherd, setting off a chain reaction of events that causes a furor of resentment among the residents of a German town, and nearly resulting in his own downfall.

“This novel about contemporary Germany must be ranked with the best.”

Saturday Review

“A triumph of invention…[Brodeur] has written a taut and impressive novel.”

Times Literary Supplement (London)

“In narrative power, in lucidity, and in richness of meaning, Mr. Brodeur is nearer to Kafka than to most of his imitators.”

Punch
