Description

Winner of a Jewish National Book Award for his previous book, Walking Israel, NBC Special Correspondent Martin Fletcher uses meticulous research and his own family's history in this stunning novel. Dramatizing explosive events in London and Palestine in the years directly following World War II, The List follows the lives of Edith and Georg, Austrian refugees who are expecting their first baby in a world unfriendly to Jews. Anti-Semitism sweeps across the streets of London even as the world learns of the atrocities of the Holocaust. As Edith and Georg desperately search for surviving family members, they struggle to stay afloat in a world riddled with terrorism, assassination attempts, and fear.

Professional reviews

"From the outset, THE LIST is a compelling novel that springs to life with David Thorn's superb performance. Written by NBC News correspondent Martin Fletcher, the book focuses on Austrian WWII survivors Edith and Georg; their cousin, Anna; and their search for surviving family members in a world of anti-Semitism. Fletcher's prose is gripping, and Thorn's use of accents and inflections helps drive the story and gives the reader a highly engaged feeling of intimacy with the characters. But in the end, the book, based in London and Palestine, succeeds because of Thorn's mastery of Fletcher's commanding prose, which vividly brings to life every scene, focusing not only on postwar life, but also on the efforts to create a Jewish state in the Middle East. D.J.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
