Reviews

"The picture of life in France and Germany at the end of WWII is fascinating and vivid..." --Kirkus Reviews "[A] vivid encapsulation of war, where the worst of inhumanity exists side by side with the best of humanity, [My Berlin Child] makes the story of Claire, who held on tightly to her humanity amidst all the horror, an exaltation of possibility for us all." --Read All Day blog "Perhaps the most moving book of the season. A story of dignity told with a tasteful drop of distance...The ingenuity and the candor that radiates fromn Wiazemsky's prose is rare."--L'Humanit' "My Berlin Child touches reades with the depth of its characters, with its portrayal of a troubled time, and with the purity of its style." --Lire "Anne Wiazemsky tells a story so extraordinary that it is wholly believable." --La Croix "What could have easily been presented in conventionally dry, chronological reportage, Wiazemsky brings to life by approaching her family history in an effectively nuanced, layered way."--Rain Taxi
