The Chosen Ones, Paperback / softback Book


Winner of the Prix Medicis Etranger The Am Spiegelgrund clinic, in glittering Vienna, masqueraded as a reform school for wayward boys and girls and a home for chronically ill children.

The reality however, was very different. Through the eyes of a child inmate, and a nurse, Steve Sem-Sandberg explores the very meaning of survival.

This extraordinary novel offers invaluable and compelling insight on an intolerable chapter of Austria's past.
