By Anna Funder.

I don't usually read non-fiction, but having just finished All That I Am by the same author, I thought I might try her earlier book.

All That I Am tells the story of a small group of anti-Nazi German refugees who fled to London when Hitler seized power, and their attempts to continue a campaign against the Nazis although hampered by legal restrictions on political involvement.

It's a fictionalised version of the truth and not a light read, but I learned a lot I hadn't known before about the consequences of appeasement on the lives of individuals at the time. Left me wanting to know more.

I read Stasiland some time ago and really enjoyed it.
