This modern story is perfection itself. It is the most effective indictment of Nazism to appear in fiction. * The New York Times Book Review *
A tale already known and profoundly appreciated by members of my generation. It is to our part in World War II what Uncle Tom's Cabin was to the Civil War. -- Kurt Vonnegut
Remarkably, despite the multitude of testimony and first-person accounts of life under Nazism with which we've been deluged since its first publication, this old, slim fiction manages to smuggle us across time and space into one eloquent tale of perfidy. -- Anne Karpf * Guardian *
That this short, fleeting story has lasted so long is not only because of its artistic achievement, and not only because, written in 1938, it astonishingly anticipated the horror that was yet to come. It is because its prescience is not confined to its time. It saw into our own future too. -- Jonathan Freedland * The Guardian *
Captivating, beautiful and unimaginably powerful, a book for our times -- Philippe Sands
A short story with a long, dark echo; fierce, clever, and timely in today's world. -- Julian Barnes
This stunning classic brilliantly defines what happens when people are swept up in a poisonous ideology. -- Val Hennessy * The Daily Mail *
