Anmeldelser

«Excoriating and profound . . . A remarkable work . . . I cannot think of an Anglophone author who writes with such polemical, poetical indignation»

Scotsman

«Powerful . . . An entracingly nightmarish analysis of the First Indochina War»

Graham Robb, The Spectator

«Clever and scathing»

Le Temps

«Vuillard writes into grey areas of history»

New York Times

«A work of ferocious reckoning . . . chilling . . . shine[s] a hard light on figures who might otherwise disappear into the jumbled backdrop of the past»

Wall Street Journal

«Absolutely spectacular»

France Info

«Pages clenched like fists ready to strike. It is the eternal war of the powerful against the weak that Vuillard stages in each of his books»

L'Obs

«Sparkling . . . By his pen, historical figures become beings of flesh and blood; we hear them breathe, we see them sweat»

L'Histoire

«The challenge for Vuillard is to tear the rancid nostalgia for 'the good old days' of the colonies, for the chic, elegant, confident and honourable colonial France, to pieces»

La Croix

«Brilliant . . . An Honourable Exit not only illuminates the machinations behind the Vietnam debacle for the French, but shows just how damaging an anachronistic hunger for domination can be.»
