Chasing the Kings of Hearts by Hanna Krall, ( Peirene Press, 2013). Translated by Philip Boehm. like many other books from this writer, is a remarkable piece of literary reportage about the Holocaust. This gripping story of love and survival is unparalleled in its power and immediacy. Hanna Krall recounts real stories with great skill and sensitivity and hopefully this book is just a taster of many others to come.
