Today’s door in the Literary Advent Calendar hides a book chosen by Louisa Tregar, author of The Lodger.
Louisa has chosen Fugitive Pieces by Anne Michaels.
Louisa says ‘Fugitive Pieces is a novel about the Holocaust, which manages to be both searing and uplifting. It’s brilliantly crafted, using images and fragments of memory; layers of meaning that resonate with and enforce each other. The writing is beautiful: dense, rich, and poetic.’
