Reviews

"Mark T. Mustian has written an extraordinary novel dealing with some of the most difficult issues of the twentieth century, issues that profoundly threaten this new century as well. "The Gendarme" explores humanity's capacity for largescale evil and how that capacity expresses itself through ordinary, smallscale, individual lives. This is a harrowing and truly important novel by a splendid American writer." Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prizewinning author of "Hell" and "A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain " "One reads this masterful work thinking all the while of its literary cousins"The Death of Artemio Cruz" by Carlos Fuentes, Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying, Snow" by Orhan Pamuk. Books such as these, novels like "The Gendarme," writers like Mr. Mustian, keep our world afloat amidst the tempests of history. Humanity would no longer recognize itself, its enduring passions and cruelties and triumphs, without them." Bob Shacochis, National Book Awardwinning author of Easy in the Islands and Swimming in the Volcano"I love this book. The haunting lesson from this gifted writer is that even the legacy of war cannot triumph over the human spirit. Where there is love and humanity, the human spirit triumphs. Read it." Sandra Dallas, New York Times bestselling author of "Prayers for Sale"""The Gendarme" does what few have the courage to do: haunted by memories of war crimes he committed under another name, he turns and enters his nightmare to find the woman who was his enemy then and now, decades later, is still his first great love. Mark Mustian shows the reader what the face of history looks like without the makeup. Mainly, though, he paints an unforgettable portrait of the human spirit at its bravest and most resilient." David Kirby, member of the National Book Critics Circle Board of Directors, NEA and Guggenheim Foundation Fellow, and author of "The HaHa""Ahmet Khan's spiritual transition to Emmet Cohn is emotionally resonant. This is an important and unique journey told with compassion and a stirring sense of humanity." Atom Egoyan"Why are war stories so often truly love stories? Because, as Mustian proves in "The Gendarme," love in the face of war gives testimony that love endures our savagery, our violence, our hatred. In this powerful retelling of the horrible crimes committed against Armenians at the beginning of World War I, "The Gendarme" is a beautiful, haunting tale of survival and resilience." Julianna Baggott, author of "The Miss America Family" and "The Madam""
