A beautiful new limited edition paperback of Fugitive Pieces, published as part of the Bloomsbury Modern Classics list Athos and I stood together on deck and looked across the water at the bright city. From this distance no one would guess the turmoil that had torn apart Greece ... The sea began to darken, and Athens, glowing in the distance, seemed to float on the horizon like a bright ship. Jakob Beer is seven years old when he is rescued from the ruins of a buried village in Nazi-occupied Poland. He is the only one of his family to have survived the invasion. Adopted by his saviour, the Greek geologist Athos, Jakob must steel himself to excavate the horrors of his own history. A novel of astounding beauty and wisdom, Fugitive Pieces is a profound meditation on the resilience of the human spirit and love's ability to restore even the most damaged of hearts.

'Monumental. Fugitive Pieces is the most important book I have read for forty years * John Berger * All except a handful of contemporary novels are dwarfed by its reach, its compassion, its wisdom A book to read many times * Geoff Dyer * This is a novel to lose yourself in; let the language pour over you, depositing its richness like waves lapping sand onto a beach. Michaels is a novelist of unusual and compelling power * The Times * Essential reading, both for its exceptional literary craft and for its exemplary and inspiring humanity * Spectator *
