“Good People” is a unique novel that comes along only once in a while. The novels’ magnitude is similar to that of Céline’s “Journey to the End of Night”. Like Céline’s unique novel which takes place during WWI and fearlessly portrays the social and economic processes that enabled and expedited the rise of fascism in Europe – Baram places a fierce mirror in front of all the “good people”, meaning all of us. “Good People” has qualities of a literary work that embodies the “zeitgeist” – spirit of an era. The novel is an immense literary creation which honors literature, the society in which it was created, and the author who wrote it.
