Product Description & Reviews

This final volume of Victor Klemperer’s diaries opens in 1945. After the horrors of the war, Victor and Eva’s return to their Dresden home seems like a fairytale. Victor tries to resume his distinguished academic career and joins East Germany’s Communist Party. In 1951, Eva dies; a year later, aged 70, Victor marries a student—an unlikely but successful love match. But with the growing repression of the Communist Party, and the memory of those who did not survive, Victor’s achievements ring hollow. Politics, he comes to believe, is, above all, the choice of “the lesser evil.” A masterpiece both of Holocaust literature and memoir.

We Had Won the War (Habíamos ganado la Guerra) is the bestselling 2008 memoir about life in post-Civil War Barcelona by the acclaimed Spanish author Esther Tusquets.

Boot Language
By Vanya Erickson
In order to survive her childhood, Vanya Erickson was forced to become fluent in two languages: her Christian Scientist mother's honeyed versions of the truth and her rancher father's hard-as-the-scrape-of-his-bootheels words, which stung like the back of his hand.   From the outside, Vanya's childhood of riding horses with her father in the solitude of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and attending flamboyant operas with her mother in the city looked idyllic. But life for Vanya was more about

The Shape of Blue: Notes on Loss, Language, Motherhood & Fear
By The Lit Pub, LLC
mpn: black & white illustrations, ean: 9781937662097, isbn: 1937662098,
''I've tried to etch together a blueprint, a map to navigate loss and motherhood, a pamphlet for survival, but the truth is: there's no such thing. That would be too predictable. When I was small, I used to spin the globe with my finger pressed into one spot with my eyes closed, and when it stopped I was supposed to read the place where my finger had pressed and that would be the place I lived as an adult. Most of the time I ended up in the middle of the ocean--vast blue space. There's so much
