Book Review – 'The Last War,' by Ana Menéndez

Book Review – ‘The Last War,’ by Ana Menéndez – Review –

The narrator of “The Last War” has received an anonymous letter accusing her war correspondent husband of infidelity. So, unfortunately, did the book’s author. It speaks to Ana Menéndez’s maturity — as a woman and a writer — that her novel doesn’t go where it might have. It doesn’t constitute literary payback.
