A gripping and beautifully imagined work of literary fiction that explores history, memory, and the traumatic legacy of the Holocaust. In the post-war tradition of trauma literature including Gunter Grass's The Tin Drum and Bernhard Schlink's The Reader, the highly acclaimed writing team Astrid Dehe and Achim Engstler raise provocative and universal questions of how we represent the past, whether we should, and how these representations impinge upon the present.
