Digging a grave during a European civil war, two men share their experiences and draw conclusions about why the history of civilization is inseparable from the history of mass violence. A first novel. 35,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
In an unnamed European village, in the middle of a civil war, one man digs while another watches over him. Slowly, they begin to talk. Over the course of the afternoon, as the snow falls and truckloads of villagers are corralled in the next field, we discover why they are there - not just who they are but also how sinister events in the country have led them to be separated by a deepening grave, and why the history of civilization is inseparable from the history of mass violence.
