This is absolutely the most spectacular novel I've ever read. It's so powerful to see into the consciousness of lives forever changed by the Holocaust. Beautifully written. Extremely moving. Don't go another day without reading this novel.

"Anne Michaels has created a world of stunning, heartbreaking clarity where even the unspeakable is captured in the light-web of her words. She is a superb poet, a breath-stopping storyteller."
by John Berger,
"This extraordinarily beautiful novel is a world. A book miraculously created because it mends the hopeless and dances with loss. Trust and read it."
