Synopses & Reviews
Winner of a Jewish National Book Award for his previous book, Walking Israel, NBC Special Correspondent Martin Fletcher uses meticulous research and his own familys history in this stunning novel.
Dramatizing explosive events in London and Palestine in the years directly following World War II, The List follows the lives of Edith and Georg, Austrian refugees who are expecting their first baby in a world unfriendly to Jews. Anti-Semitism sweeps across the streets of London even as the world learns of the atrocities of the Holocaust. As Edith and Georg desperately search for surviving family members, they struggle to stay afloat in a world riddled with terrorism, assassination attempts, and fear.
“The List is an elegantly written and evocative story of Holocaust survivors and what they faced after the war. Martin, always the journalist, dug into his family’s past to give us a novel that is at once instructive, darkly comic and ultimately inspiring.”
—Tom Brokaw Tom Brokaw
