The Rose Café: Love and War in Corsica

'“[The Rose Café is] a lovely, multilayered memoir, capturing Mitchell’s recollections of his idyllic state of ‘suspended animation.’ ” —The New York Times Book Review   “The juxtaposition of the beautiful island’s vitality and the horrors it so recently survived are captured well in Mitchell’s precise and evocative prose.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review   “With an acute sense of character and precise flair for dramatic detail, Mitchell’s picaresque memoir renders this seductively vaporous world in crystalline prose.” —Booklist   “Places don’t come much hoarier, more esoteric than Corsica, and that means paradise in John Hanson Mitchell’s geography.” —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution  '
