Editorial Reviews


“A skillfully constructed novel by [a] much-honored author. . . . A brilliant and genuinely disturbing book.”—Kirkus

“This is a complex, riveting, and deeply moving book about passion and remorse, selfishness and generosity, cruelty and kindness.”—Susan Zuccotti, author of Under His Very Windows: The Vatican and the Holocaust in Italy
(Susan Zuccotti)

“A remarkable and moving story, beautifully rendered by Gregory Conti in a poetic prose that always seems to strike exactly the right note.”—Breon Mitchell, Professor of Comparative Literature, Indiana University
(Breon Mitchell)

“No one recreates childhood better than Rosetta Loy. No one shows more tellingly how neither love nor mercy suffices when a soul rages for justice. Readers of English will be grateful to Gregory Conti for his economical, faithful, fluent rendering of this novel of complicity and resistance, of how loves find fulfillment—and at what terrible costs.”—Blossom S. Kirschenbaum, translator of Giuliana Morandini’s Bloodstains and Paola Drigo’s Maria Zef
(Blossom S. Kirschenbaum)

"What a fascinating novel this is. . . . Narration, description, and characterization are superlative."—Jewish Book World
(Jewish Book World)

Interesting...Italy's persecution of Jew during WWII from the perspective of an onlooker. Point of view is sometimes confusing...initially that of a young child who is sent to live in Switzerland, later unclear who is speaking... atmospheric..

A very good translation of the original Italian. I'm using it to help my Italian student (and me).
