Reviews

'A beautiful literary mind.' A.S. Patric 'An impressive and captivating story of remembrance, a journey into the past for the sake of deciphering our present.' Dasa Drndic 'In The Book of Dirt the fractured lines of memory create a gripping story of survival and love.' -- Leah Kaminsky 'An immense work of love and anger, a book Bram Presser was born to write.' -- Joan London 'Meet Bram Presser, aged five, smoking a cigarette with his grandmother in Prague. Meet Jakub Rand, one of the Jews chosen to assemble the Nazi's Museum of the Extinct Race. Such details, like lightning flashes, illuminate this audacious work about the author's search for the grandfather he loved but hardly knew. Working in the wake of writers like Modiano and Safran Foer, Presser brilliantly shows how fresh facts can derail old truths, how fiction can amplify memory. A smart and tender meditation on who we become when we attempt to survive survival.' -- Mireille Juchau
