Debacles by Marion Aubert

In DEBACLES, matters of real gravity—French resistance efforts during the Second World War— unfold in scenes that would be unbearably sad if anyone could see things for what they really are. Instead, events are strangely funny. Borne aloft by dreams and delusions about their role in history, Aubert’s characters—who are realistically sketched precisely because they are so cartoonish—alternately talk right past each other and rush headlong into disaster. When tragedy and farce coincide, mankind’s saving grace is oblivion. Evil may be banal, but goodness is stupid—and so, just maybe, it will ultimately prevail.
