The Last of Our Kind

Hachette UK

'A word of advice: don't start reading this page-turner at bedtime, or you'll be staying up all night.' Psychologies, France

WINNER OF THE GRAND PRIX DU ROMAN AND THE ACQUI STORIA PRIZE.

Werner Zilch was adopted as an infant, and knows nothing of his biological family. But when, in 1970s New York, he meets the family of Rebecca, the woman he has fallen in love with, a mysterious link means he must uncover the truth of his past, or run the risk of losing her.

Spanning 1945 Dresden, the Bavarian Alps and uncovering Operation Paperclip, this is a riveting novel of family and love, for anyone who loved The Tattooist of Auschwitz and The Storyteller, beautifully translated from French by Adriana Hunter.
