I'm Famous!

I've been blurbed!

My review of The Mermaid and the Messerschmitt by Rulka Langer is quoted on the back of the reprinted edition.



This was one of my favorite books of 2010.  Subtitled "War Through a Woman's Eyes," it is a lively, personal memoir about the WWII German invasion of Warsaw.   

My full review is here. There is a hefty quote from my review on the back of the new edition, along with a glowing compliment from Alan Furst, author of Spies of the Balkans and other really good historical spy novels.

From my review:
An incredible book . . . thoroughly absorbing and quick to read . . . deserves a wide audience . . . would make an excellent book club choice, especially for readers who enjoyed  Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky, The Diary of Anne Frank, or Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay.

I feel like the Book Blogger Queen for a Day!

So excited for you! But, wait, you plugged "Sarah's Key" in the process? Oh, honey.

Rose City Reader said...

LKT: Indeed! I'll try to stay humble . . . .

Sunny: Thanks! I think I'm mostly excited to know that someone read the review!

Laura: I said "for people who liked Sarah's Key." I didn't say that I liked Sarah's Key. ;-)
