FROM THE PUBLISHERS OF STONER AND REVOLUTIONARY ROAD COMES REUNIONReunion is a little-known novel.
But it is also a universal story of friendship. It is a book of great power, waiting to be discovered. 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

Review by praymont
Set mostly before WWII, this story about a Jewish adolescent (who must flee his beloved Germany) and his Stauffenberg-like friend juxtaposes 'heiliges Deutschland' and its 1930's aberration.
