by Affinity Konar
£8.99   paperback  Atlantic Books (2017)

Mischling by Affinity Konar Mischling by Affinity Konar is a special novel. Braiding the lyricism and historical sweep of All the Light We Cannot See with the psychological intensity of Room, it’s a spell-binding story of survival and resilience in Mengele’s zoo in Auschwitz.
Garlanded with feverish quotes from Pulitzer Prize winners to Man Booker nominees, Mischling is an astonishing novel of those small moments of hope and beauty that light the dark.
It’s 1944 when the twin sisters Pearl and Stasha arrive at Auschwitz. Taking refuge in their identical natures, they comfort themselves with the private language and shared games of their childhood. As part of the experimental population of twins known as Mengele’s Zoo, the girls experience privileges and horrors unknown to others, and they find themselves changes, stripped of the personalities they once shared. When the camp is liberated by the Red Army, the twins are separated. As the young survivors discover what has become of the world, they must try to imagine a future within it.
