A beautiful new limited edition paperback of Fugitive Pieces, published as part of the Bloomsbury Modern Classics listAthos and I stood together on deck and looked across the water at the bright city.

From this distance no one would guess the turmoil that had torn apart Greece ...

The sea began to darken, and Athens, glowing in the distance, seemed to float on the horizon like a bright ship. Jakob Beer is seven years old when he is rescued from the ruins of a buried village in Nazi-occupied Poland.

He is the only one of his family to have survived the invasion.

Adopted by his saviour, the Greek geologist Athos, Jakob must steel himself to excavate the horrors of his own history. A novel of astounding beauty and wisdom, Fugitive Pieces is a profound meditation on the resilience of the human spirit and love's ability to restore even the most damaged of hearts.
