Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anne Michaels' spellbinding debut novel has quickly become one of the most beloved and talked-about books of the decade. In 1940, Jakob Beer, a seven-year-old boy, bursts from the mud of a war-torn Polish city, where he has buried himself to hide from Nazi soldiers who have killed his family. Though he should have died with his family, he has not only survived but been rescued by a Greek geologist. With this electrifying backdrop, Anne Michaels propels us into her rapturously acclaimed novel of loss, memory, history, and redemption. Michaels lets us witness Jakob's transformation from a half-wild casualty of the Holocaust to an artist who extracts meaning from the abyss. Filled with mysterious symmetries and rendered in heart-stopping prose, Fugitive Pieces is a triumphant work.

Synopsis:

Anne Michaels’s spellbinding novel has quickly become one of the most beloved and talked-about books of the decade. At the age of seven during the Second World War, Jakob Beer is rescued from the mud of a buried Polish city and spirited to safety in Greece. There, in the seclusion of an unlikely savior, he spends the last years of the Occupation in precarious refuge. Decades later, after moving to North America, Jakob meets Ben, a young professor whose own connection to the wounding legacies of war kindle within him a fascination with the older man and his writing. An unforgettable exploration of grief and redemption, Fugitive Pieces draws us into the lives of its characters with compassion and recognition.
