Striking and insightful,
This review is from: Warsaw (Kindle Edition)
I received an advance copy of this novel from the publishers. I thought I'd like this book - but in the end I loved it. Warsaw is an example of literature as a means of creating empathy and understanding history. The narrative follows Jewish and German characters in the Warsaw ghetto. Not all of the episodes make for comfortable reading, but this is a strength rather than weakness. Striking and insightful oxymorons are used to express the conflicting passions and principles of humanity - and the twist filled plot grips to the very last page. I do not wish to spoil the story but the ending is one of the most affecting and memorable I've come across in a long time.
