A sometimes hilarious but heartbreaking novel based on the collective memory of the Holocaust as experienced by the young author and his contemporaries. I roared and then I wept. This book is a magnifying glass focused on a shudderingly ghastly reality. The literary technique uses “Magic Realism,” of great relevance to visual designers. It also provides insight into the cultural background of many significant design leaders of our time.
