The Double Life of Liliane by Lily Tuck
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Because this is a mix of fact and fiction - a fictionalized autobiography, apparently - it took far longer for me to read this than usual: I kept stopping to check on this person, that location. It was gratifying to find them, frustrating when I couldn't or when their reality didn't quite match with what was going on in the book! My hope is that the final version (this was an ARC) provides more clarity or at least a resource list... Even without that, I'm definitely recommending this look at the life of a young girl in France, whose parents must flee/avoid the Nazis, and how she moves into both adulthood and an American existence. No, it's not easy, but it is fascinating.
