Nice interview with Joe Donahue on WAMC – we talk about Impossible Escape and Yukie’s Island!
Today’s the book birthday for my new nonfiction book, Impossible Escape, the true story of a Jewish teenager who escaped from Auschwitz. The book has gotten 5 starred reviews – but I’m just as proud of the response from my fellow writers. I used a few of the quotes in this short book trailer:
Just a week now until the release of my new book – the most amazing escape story I’ve come across in a career of research. I’m really looking forward to sharing this one. Lots more on the book here.
My new nonfiction book, Impossible Escape, will be out on August 29. Just saw the first review – a starred review from Kirkus! As usual for me, this book was years in the making, with lots of research – including a trek across southern Poland last summer. Much more to come soon on this story!
Just a few more days till the launch of the Bomb graphic novel! I’ll be doing a few public events – two of them with the book’s amazing artist, Nick Bertozzi. Come say in Washington, D.C., St. Louis, and Saratoga Springs, NY – here’s all the info.
Check out the first review of the upcoming Bomb graphic novel! “A heady whirl of science and spycraft made even more immediate (and frightening) by strong visuals.” – Kirkus (starred review)
