A novel about the martyrdom of Europe’s Jews that has never been surpassed.” -Times Literary Supplement

“One of the enduring works of the Shoah… This miraculous novel pays profound homage to remembrance.” -Boston Globe

Cut off from all news of the war along with thousands of fellow prisoners, Jacob Heym accidentally overhears a radio broadcast that reveals the Red Army’s advancement and is forced to tell a series of lies in order to explain his knowledge.

Wasn't this a movie in the 1990s? I want to say Robin Williams was in it. I vaguely remember it. I didn't know it was a book, but I guess I'm not surprised, as a lot of books do end up being made into movies.

You are right, it was Robin Williams who played Jacob. I too didn't realize it was a book.
