"Extraordinary...Rich in irony and regret...[the] people and settings are vividly realized and his prose [is] compelling in its simplicity." THE WALL STREET JOURNAL As the world slips into the throes of war in 1939, young Maciek's once closetted existence outside Warsaw is no more. When Warsaw falls, Maciek escapes with his aunt Tania. Together they endure the war, running, hiding, changing their names, forging documents to secure their temporary lives-as the insistent drum of the Nazi march moves ever closer to them and to their secret wartime lies. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Louis Begley's Memories of a Marriage.
