Unlock the more straightforward side of The Kindly Ones with this concise and insightful summary and analysis!

This engaging summary presents an analysis of The Kindly Ones by Jonathan Littell, the gripping and graphic story of Max Aue, an SS officer during World War II, who is forced to bear the weight of the atrocities he has contributed to, his increasingly incestuous fantasies and even the fact that he is wanted for murder. Despite being the subject of widespread scandal and mixed critical and public opinion, the novel received two prestigious French literary prizes after it was published, including the Grand Prix du Roman de l'Académie Française. Littell is a French-American author with a Jewish background, who became known following the publication of this work, which also received the 2009 British Bad Sex in Fiction Award.
