Praise for A Model Childhood

  • A MODEL CHILDHOOD delves painfully into the German past... The honesty, the apalling hindsight-driven ironies, the cool searching narrative: this art of a major writer offers just a glimmer, just the faintest apalled glimmer, of comprehension as to how it could all have grown, how it could have happened... the horror which so deformed Europe's recent past. - SCOTSMAN

  • A piercing account of the inner lives of artists at a time of great social change. - THE TIMES

  • A vivid testimony. - THE MAIL ON SUNDAY
