*A TIME MAGAZINE MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF 2024 * *AN OPRAH DAILY MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF 2024* *AN OBSERVER 2024 PICK* *A GUARDIAN 2024 PICK* 'An epic family odyssey... ambitious and compelling' Guardian Book of the Day June 1940. As Paris falls to the Germans, Gaston Cassar - honorable servant of France, devoted husband and father, currently posted as naval attache in Salonica - bids farewell to his beloved wife, aunt and children, placing his faith in God that they will be reunited after the war. But escaping the violence of that cataclysm is not the same as emerging unscathed. The family will never again be whole. A work of breathtaking historical sweep and vivid psychological intimacy, This Strange Eventful History charts the Cassars' unfolding story as its members move between Salonica and Algeria, the US, Cuba, Canada, Argentina, Australia and France - their itinerary shaped as much by a search for an elusive wholeness, as by the imperatives of politics, faith, family, industry and desire.
