Note: 
Probing moral ambiguities, this novel set during the Holocaust in rural France lends itself to class discussion. It is told by an old man about himself and his brothers when they were mischievous boys who became good liars to evade their strict, pious mother's restrictions on their fun. When their area is occupied by Nazis, they learn the difference between lies and the truth, sport and life. And they see their mother's courage and integrity in a new light.
