Product description

Review

Mischling is a paradox. It's a beautiful novel about the most odious of crimes, it's a deeply-researched act of remembrance that somehow carries the lightness of a fairy tale, and it's a coming-of-age story about children who aren't allowed to come of age. If your soul can survive the journey, you'll be rewarded by one of the most harrowing, powerful, and imaginative books of the year -- Anthony Doerr, bestselling author of ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE Affinity Konar is an astonishing and fearless writer, whose great gift to us is this book. With incantatory magic, she marches through the most nightmarish of landscapes, swinging her light -- Karen Russell, author of SWAMPLANDIA Affinity Konar's Mischling is a piercing novel written with chin-up virtuosity. The prose is dazzling, and the story of these twins is moving and searing, and as powerful as the best mythic stories of the masters of old -- Chigozie Obioma, author of THE FISHERMEN Affinity Konar's MISCHLING is a tale of courage, courageously told - spare and beautiful, riveting and heartrending... A case of extraordinary storytelling from first page to transcendent last -- David Wroblewski, author of THE STORY OF EDGAR SAWTELLE Konar has woven a masterful and poignant account of a pair of twin sisters who cannot be separated, even by the cruelest hand of fate. Her prose is mystical and delicately poetic, and she uses her manifold gifts to tell a deeply engaging story of fortitude and triumph -- Lucette Lagnado, author of CHILDREN OF THE FLAMES and THE MAN IN THE SHARKSKIN SUIT

Review

'Konar makes every sentence count; it's to her credit that the girls never come across as simply victims: they're flawed, memorable characters trying to stay alive. This is a brutally beautiful book.' (Publishers Weekly)

'Fiction of rare poignancy – and astonishing hope ... An unforgettable sojourn of the spirit.' (Booklist)

'The sheer beauty of the language in Mischling is one of the things that makes the book unlike most other Holocaust novels.' (Kirkus Reviews) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
