Martin Fletcher’s The List is the passionate love story of Edith and Georg, Austrian refugees living in London after World War II. In an overlooked period in postwar British history, Fletcher sheds light on the rise of Anti-Semitism that calls for the expulsion of refugees from the country as the Jewish couple avoids violence and abuse while spending their quiet days searching for surviving family without much luck. Expecting their first child, all Edith and Georg want is to raise their child in peace in a world that is anything but.
“The List is an elegantly written and evocative story of Holocaust survivors and what they faced after the war. Martin, always the journalist, dug into his family’s past to give us a novel that is at once instructive, darkly comic and ultimately inspiring.” —Tom Brokaw
“Extraordinary—both spellbinding and heartbreaking, with brilliantly rendered characters and a breathtaking conclusion.” —Andrea Mitchell, NBC News
“Will haunt and inspire you long after you turn the final page.” –Daniel Silva, author of Portrait of a Spy
“Extraordinary—a page turning thriller that pulls you in and won’t let go.” –Jonathan Wilson, author of A Palestine Affair
