Refusal Summary


Refusal by Soazig Aaron

When Klara appears in Paris, two months after the end of the war and years after her disappearance into Auschwitz, her best friend and sister-in-law, Angelika, is elated, if apprehensive. Initially, her fears seem well founded - Klara won't eat, nor will she acknowledge the daughter she has left behind. Gradually, Klara reveals with cold anger and pitiless lucidity, the full extent of what she experienced in Auschwitz as she struggles to readapt to normal life. Not since Sophie's Choice has a novelist succeeded in conveying - with truth, dignity, power and intelligence - the inhumanity of the death camps and the scars suffered by those who survived them. Refusal is a compelling, elegant and often heart-breaking glimpse into life beyond the horror.

Refusal Reviews


"A gift from heaven, a marvel of good writing, an unashamed and inventive approximation to the unbearable weight of memory. I have been waiting for some time for an account like Refusal. I did not expect this quality and had not dared hope for it... Soon only fiction - that is the paradox, the mystery of literature - will be able to not merely bring to life, but also enrich this memory" -- Jorge Semprun * Nouvel Observateur *
"The most remarkable, awake-all-night-to-finish read" -- Antonia Fraser * Sunday Telegraph, Books of the Year *
