The Dark Room: A Novel

The Dark Room: A Novel -  Rachel Seiffert

It is written in the present tense, which effectively lets the spare intense prose describe the emotions, motivations, and acts of the characters. Heart-felt and illuminating, it ought to be read by readers interested in 20th-century Germany, WWII, and the psychology of compliance to authority and survivor's guilt. This novel was nominated for the Mann Booker Prize in 2001
