Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A well-balanced mix of Nonfiction, General Fiction, Romance and Mystery in the lightweight softcover format preferred by many readers. Selections are a blend of international authors, chosen for the broadest appeal. There are also some carefully selected backlist titles by proven favorite authors.

On September 23, 1939, a young Warsaw pianist played Chopin's Nocturne in C sharp minor live on the radio. Later that day, a German bomb destroyed the station and Polish radio went off the air. The horrors of occupation would kill most of Wladyslaw Szpilman's friends and all of his family. But, incredibly, his life was saved by a Wehrmacht officer who heard him play the same nocturne among the rubble. This gripping memoir includes excerpts from the diary of Wilm Hosenfeld, the Wehrmacht officer who had the courage to stand against evil.

Synopsis:

Wladyslaw Szpilman was a young Jewish pianist who, almost uniquely, managed to stay alive in Warsaw throughout World War II. Immediately afterwards, he wrote this account of his experiences during the war.

Synopsis:

A new edition of the powerful memoir by the Jewish pianist who survived the War in Warsaw. Published to tie-in with the Roman Polanski film which has achieved great success at Cannes. B/w illus.
