Book Overview
The Wife of Martin Guerre -based on a notorious trial in sixteenth-century France-is one of the most significant short novels in English ( Atlantic Monthly ). Originally published in 1941, it still raises questions about identity, belonging, and about an individual's capacity to act within an inflexible system.
