Description

Anne Michaels's spellbinding novel has quickly become one of the most beloved and talked-about books of the decade. At the age of seven during the Second World War, Jakob Beer is rescued from the mud of a buried Polish city and spirited to safety in Greece. There, in the seclusion of an unlikely savior, he spends the last years of the Occupation in precarious refuge. Decades later, after moving to North America, Jakob meets Ben, a young professor whose own connection to the wounding legacies of war kindle within him a fascination with the older man and his writing. An unforgettable exploration of grief and redemption, Fugitive Pieces draws us into the lives of its characters with compassion and recognition.

Editorial Reviews

"The dual narration of Munro and Matamoros lends a surprisingly deep sense of truth to Fugitive Pieces. A child's life is saved by a Greek geologist, who rescues him from hiding during WWII. Decades later, as an adult, he revisits the past by chance, when he meets a young professor whose parents survived the Holocaust. Listeners will be at once intrigued and deeply moved by individual voices that play off each other with a dialogue that seems almost operatic. There's a solid story here too, which makes listening even more fulfilling." — AudioFile


"Features fine performances by actor/directors Neil Munro and Diego Matamoros, whose resonant voices suit the book's emotional themes and Michaels' inner world." — Quill & Quire
