About this Item

Author's second novel, following two books of poetry and a well-received first novel, Falling, that was named one of the ten best novels of 1973. This is the long (489 pages)story of a young Jewish heroine fighting for her and her daughter's life and hding from the Nazis in Poland during WWII. Book is tightly bound and without markings but very slight soiling around the edges and a printing flaw where the final six pages are slightly torn along the top edge. The DJ is bright and clean with faint edgewear most obvious at the spine ends and corners. Nice in mylar cover. Bookseller Inventory # 001929

About this title


A Russian Jew recalls her parents and life in Poland before and during the Holocaust

From the Inside Flap:

y's beautiful life seemed like one long and perfect dream that would spin on forever.
But her wonderful world of dances, travel, medical school, and her beloved family ended one day late in the summer of 1939, when Hitler invaded Poland. The bombs that leveled her Warsaw home that day marked the beginning of her soul-stirring odyssey of endurance and escape, through years of horror and Holocaust. Strong when others grew weak, selfless in pursuit of freedom, Anya, once the beautiful, pampered daughter of privilege, turned herself into a survivor whom nothing and no one could destroy.
"A triumph of realism in art." -- The New York Times Book Review
"ANYA is a myth, an epic, the creation of darkness and of laughter stopped forever . . . . A vision, set down by a fearless, patient poet . . . A writer of remarkable power." -- The Washington Post
