No One is Here Except All of Us Book Review
“I almost remember you.” Every single sentence lands with poetic grace. I couldn’t stop mouthing “wow,” as this book grabbed my hand and led me, running, through a dreamlike and devastating fantasy world. For the residents of a tiny Jewish village, the fantasy is a self-imposed coping mechanism: a new creation story that wipes generations of pain away and allows them to start fresh. While World War II rages around them, the village of Zalischik is spared… for a while, at least. Safe as long as their luck holds, the residents must re-invent everything, re-imagine their relationships, and learn to make a new world together.
