Translated from the French by Gerard Hopkins. Twenty-seventh and final volume of Romain's epic roman-fleuve MEN OF GOOD WILL (Les Hommes de Bonne Volonté), one of the longest -- if not the longest -- novels ever written, considered as a single unified work. Issued as volume 14 of the Knopf American editions, which combined each previous set of two annual volumes in a single book.
