9780099464358: Waiting For Leah

It is September 1944; the war is going badly for the Germans, and they are in a hurry to complete their 'final solution'. Compromises are being made on all sides, conditions are unspeakable, rumours are rife, but nothing definite is known of the Nazis' intentions.

On the outskirts of a concentration camp in northern Bohemia three people - two eighteen-year-old men and a desperately lost young woman, Leah - are thrown together, sharing their precarious existence in an attic room. While the world disintegrates around them their relationships are charged with passion, their days filled with erotic and spiritual attraction. Caught in the web of their relationships, their futures are uncertain and any choices they have left to make will be made in the face of almost certain death...

Review:

"The power of his words lies in their very lack of melodrama... beautiful prose" ( Time Out)

"This wonderful book follows the shifting moralities of people caught in a hopeless situation" ( Good Book Guide)

From the Publisher:

'In my view, Lustig is the finest living Czech author and his work cries out for the Nobel Prize and every other literary award.' John Murray, Literary Review
