Zeeland, Or, Elective Concurrences: A Novel
Zeeland tracks grandfather and grandson Michel and Michael Beauchamp as they embark on parallel journeys through wartime Europe. Separated by 70 years, Michael, an American soldier, and Michel, a French printer, flee German-occupied France towards Gibraltar. As Michael travels, he continues to stumble onto traces of his grandfather's earlier journey, discovering patterns which connect the two men across the expanse of time. Koning has constructed a novel which explores the nature of coincidence, the logic of history, and the emergence of order from chaos.
