Editorial reviews

Israel 1959, Grandfather Anschel, once a writer of Children's stories in Poland, is delivered to his family unexpectedly alive but insane. He mutters a barely audible story in a solitary address to an extermination camp commandant. Only young Momik listens and as an adult reconstructs the story and Anschel's life. It becomes an hallucinatory literary journey that reconstructs the lost memories of Over There, as to forget to deny. Fluid, highly readable yet complex writing; shot through with the powerful black humour of the oppressed that can make you smile as it explores the darkest places. (Kirkus UK)
