Small Acts of Defiance (2022)
Michelle Wright
"A powerful and nuanced book, so evocative of place and time while being timeless. I found it thoroughly absorbing; the characters felt authentic, and the details of Paris in the forties and under occupation fascinating. In these stories of war, in particular those which touch on the atrocity of genocide, it's easy to simply pile on the horror. Wright offers a more human, honest version without diminishing the importance of the Holocaust which is intrinsic to the time, place and characters. A truly fine novel."
