1942: il Ghetto di Varsavia attraverso gli occhi di un bambino. Un'insolita storia di sogni, paure, giochi e poesia. «L'Olocausto è la mia infanzia e c'erano molte cose belle e divertenti allora, che non si possono avere se si cresce invece in tempo di pace. [...] Volevo scrivere di un bambino nel ghetto che diventa una sorta di Robinson Crusoe in una città vuota: per sopravvivere prende dalle altre case ciò che gli serve come Robinson prendeva dai relitti di altre navi sospinte sulla spiaggia dalle onde».

L’autobiografia di Uri Orlev, il più grande scrittore israeliano per ragazzi, autore dell’Isola in via degli uccelli. Questa è la storia di come un ragazzo ebreo attraversa l’Olocausto e diventa scrittore. Ma non è un racconto di disperazione, malgrado le atrocità e le tante morti di cui l’autore purtroppo da piccolo è stato testimone, né di sentimentalismi. Orlev ha vissuto esattamente come un bambino qualsiasi, con il coraggio e la straordinaria forza vitale dell’infanzia, come il protagonista di un’avventura, eroe invincibile di un racconto.

What if, one day, Europe was to crack along the length of the Pyrenees, separating the Iberian peninsula? In Saramago's lovely fable, the new island is sent spinning, like a great stone raft, towards the Azores. While the authorities panic and tourists and investors flee, three men, two women and a dog are drawn together by portents that burden them with a bemusing sense of responsibility. Travelling at first packed into a car, then into a wagon, they take to the road to explore the limits of their now finite land, adrift in a world made new by this radical shift in perspective.

As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous.
