Description

"[Gajdusek] provides an in-depth, multi-layered, and personal memoir of his combat experience and its aftermath. Resurrection takes many turns and twists in time and space and is filled with surprising revelations such as finding peace of mind while being a prisoner of war. . . . The ultimate lesson of Resurrection is pro-humanity, not anti-war. That is why stories like these need to be told and read." —North Dakota Quarterly
 
“Gajdusek’s compelling memoir, Resurrection, A War Journey, is not strictly about facts. Rather, it is his earnest, groping attempt—after more than 50 years—to overpower his ‘recalcitrant mind’ and confront the horrors he has not been able to write about. Using a peripatetic style to get at the truth, Gajdusek jumps from World War II archival material to poetry, short stories, and vivid, terrifying, and sometimes surreal reflections. . . . Like a frantic ancient mariner, Gajdusek transfixes readers with his searing, honest memoir. He invites us, he writes in the preface, ‘to a place you have not been’ to discover ‘what of value can be resurrected from the dying and suffering.’ ” — San Francisco Chronicle
Robert E. Gajdusek (1925–2003) was a leading scholar on Ernest Hemingway and is the author of Hemingway in His Own Country (University of Notre Dame Press, 2002), Hemingway and Joyce: A Study of Debt and Payment, and Hemingway's Paris.
