Selected as a Book of the Year 2016 in the Guardian Reunion is a little-known but perfect novel with fans including Ian McEwan, John Boyne, Deborah Moggach, David Nicholls, Meg Rosoff and Sarah Perry. On a grey afternoon in 1932, a Stuttgart classroom is stirred by the arrival of a newcomer.
Middle-class Hans is intrigued by the aristocratic new boy, Konradin, and before long they become best friends.
It's a friendship of the greatest kind, of shared interests and long conversations, of hikes in the German hills and growing up together.
But the boys live in a changing Germany. Powerful, delicate and daring, Reunion is a story of the fragility, and strength, of the bonds between friends. 'Exquisite' Guardian'I loved Reunion and found it very moving' John BoyneWITH AN AFTERWORD BY RACHEL SEIFFERT
