Anna Funder, winner of the Samuel Johnson Prize and author of Stasiland, offers a thrilling tale and powerful love story that tells the heroic and tragic true story of the German resistance in World War II in All That I Am.

When Hitler comes to power in 1933, a tight-knit group of friends and lovers become hunted outlaws overnight. United in their resistance to the madness and tyranny of Nazism, they must flee the country.

Dora, passionate and fearless, her lover, the great playwright Ernst Toller, her younger cousin Ruth and Ruth's husband Hans find refuge in London. Here they take breath-taking risks in order to continue their work in secret.

But England is not the safe-haven they think it to be, and a single, chilling act of betrayal will tear them apart...

'The strengths of Funder's writing are emotional and imaginative. In what she has to say about love, loss and betrayal there is profound truth' The Times

'An often pacy and exciting read ... Funder captures perfectly the sense of her characters' deprived and dangerous lives' Daily Mail

'A superb novel that transcends its setting. This book is a wonder. Do, please, read it' Spectator

Review:

Spellbinding ... there are echoes of the best espionage tales (Sunday Telegraph)

A superb novel that transcends its setting. This book is a wonder. Do, please, read it (Spectator)

The strengths of Funder's writing are emotional and imaginative. In what she has to say about love, loss and betrayal there is profound truth (The Times)

Dora is the most attractive fictional heroine in a long time ... a gripping story of love and betrayal (New Statesman)

A seamless and powerful tale ... of individual endeavour and survival that examines universal human themes (Independent on Sunday)

A remarkable story told with clarity and precision (Guardian)

The subtlety of Anna Funder's novel is in the elegance of her precise prose, and in her painstaking portrait of an ordinary woman swept up in extraordinary events ... The result is a strong and impressively humane novel (TLS)

A story of courage and betrayal ... she has captured the atmosphere of what it must have been like to have been at the centre of the left-wing movement in post-war Germany (Evening Standard)

Anna Funder proved herself a first-rate reporter with Stasiland - now she appears as a compelling novelist in a dark story of German emigres in the 1930s, struggling to warn the indifferent English against the Nazis (Claire Tomalin)

The subtlety of Anna Funder's novel is in the elegance of her precise prose, and in her painstaking portrait of an ordinary woman swept up in extraordinary events...The result is a strong and impressively humane novel (Ruth Scurr TLS)

From the Back Cover:

When Hitler seizes power in 1933, a tight-knit group of friends and lovers suddenly become hunted outlaws overnight. Dora, liberated and fearless; her lover, the great playwright Ernst Toller; Ruth; and Ruth's journalist husband, Hans find refuge in London. There, using secret contacts deep inside the Nazi regime, they take breathtaking risks to warn the world of Hitler's plans for war. But England is not the safe haven they think it will be, and a single, chilling act of betrayal will tear them apart....

Based on true events, All That I Am is testament to some of the earliest--now forgotten--heroes of the resistance to Hitler.
