Product description

Review

An intriguing novel about history and truth . . . The intelligence and inquiry of this book will surprise many (THE TIMES)

Wonderful . . . brilliantly realised (INDEPENDENT)

It is a sombre, clever book, but, being Baddiel, is irradiated by flashes of dark humour (Sally Vickers, SPECTATOR)

David Baddiel's excellent new novel . . . Sensitive, intelligent and deeply moving, THE SECRET PURPOSES is both a gripping read and a long overdue indictment of Britain's treatment of Jewish refugees (IMAGE)

Book Description

Brilliantly accomplished and critically acclaimed novel of Nazi Germany and the plight of internees in wartime Britain by writer and comedian David Baddiel.
