              Desperate to escape the Eastern front, Peter Faber, an ordinary German soldier, marries Katharina Spinell, a woman he has never met; it is a marriage of convenience that promises 'honeymoon' leave for him and a pension for her should he die on the front.

              Desperate to escape the Eastern front, Peter Faber, an ordinary German soldier, marries Katharina Spinell, a woman he has never met; it is a marriage of convenience that promises honeymoon leave for him and a pension for her should he die on the front. With ten days' leave secure...d, Peter visits his new wife in Berlin; both are surprised by the attraction that develops between them. When Peter returns to the horrors of the front, it is only the dream of his wife that sustains him as he approaches Stalingrad. Back in Berlin, Katharina, goaded on by her desperate and delusional parents, ruthlessly works her way into the Nazi party hierarchy, wedding herself, her young husband and their unborn child to the regime. But when the tide of war turns and Berlin falls, Peter and Katharina, ordinary people stained with their small share of extraordinary guilt, find their simple dream of family increasingly hard to hold on to. A stunning, riveting debut novel in the tradition of Bernhard Schlink's The Reader and Rachel Seiffert's The Dark Room, The Undertaking shines an intense light on history and illuminates the lives of those caught up in one of its darkest chapters. 'The Undertaking is written with sympathy and skill. The narrative is tense and engaging, filled with complex undertones, impelled by an urgency and a deep involvement with the characters.' Colm Toibin 'A bold and unsettling feat of empathy, all the more daring for its taut, beautifully understated style.' A D Miller 'Audrey Magee is one of the most exciting new talents to arrive on the literary scene. There is an emotional depth to her writing which elevates her to the top rank of contemporary novelists. I read the book with awe and gratitude.' Fergal Keane

              A finalist for the 2014 Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction Impressive. Magee's terse style, cross-cutting between the narratives of Katharina and Peter, generates its own tension and momentum. -- New York Times Book Review Bare, brutal...told with a sharply focused simplicity that... both exposes and condemns through its understatement. -- Kirkus Reviews Lauded by New York Times bestselling writer Chris Cleave as outstanding and finalist for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction, The Undertaking is a remarkable debut novel from enticing new voice in fiction, Audrey Magee. Set during World War II amid the trenches of the Eastern front and the turmoil of Berlin under the Third Reich, The Undertaking follows the lives of an ordinary German soldier Peter Faber, as he approaches Stalingrad, and his new wife, Katharina Spinell, who, goaded on by her delusional parents, ruthlessly works her way into Nazi high society with tragic consequences. This is an unforgettable and elegant novel of marriage, ambition, and the brutality of war from one of our finest new writers. This is a devastating but quite stunning first novel. -- Minneapolis Star Tribune A bold, honest novel about Nazi greed and moral blankness...Magee's cool, precise tone recalls Hans Fallada's Alone in Berlin, and, like Heinrich Boll, Magee is haunted by the everyday and the small people who are inseparably part of a great ravagement. --Helen Dunmore, The Guardian (UK)
