Permanently in my permanent collection.
I can't believe I've had this gem of a novel resting on MTBR for 18 months or so, unaware of the treasures inside. A moving, poignent and at times deeply troubling, story of a young Aryan growing up in Berlin as Hitler comes to power, and her circle of friends, which includes Jews and disabled people, experience more and more prejudice, fear and violence. Recommended; this book has confirmed Zimler as one of my favourite writers of historical fiction.
