Imprisoned at Auschwitz, Daniel feels his humanity slipping away. Then a visit from a mysterious stranger changes everything, as Daniel's former identity as a crafter of fine violins is revealed to all. Interspersed with chilling Nazi documentation, this novel is a testament to the strength of the human spirit.
Translated from the Catalan.
Not a book that we would recommend. We found it badly written, rather stilted. The content is not as hard hitting as we expected - it was disappointingly light.
