Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Winner, Orange Prize for Fiction In 1940. seven-year-old Jakob Beer is rescued from hiding by a Greek geologist. Decades later, he revisits the past through an encounter with a young professor.
