Tales of Grabowski: Transformations, Escape & Other Stories
Toby Press, 2003 - 307 Seiten
Tales of Grabowski comprises two novellas, Transformations and Escape, together with several short stories, all of which tell the story of David Gordon, a young Jew from Warsaw, who transforms himself into Wladyslaw Grabowski, a Polish stoker in the German merchant marines.
Auerbach balances the internal tensions between Gordon's desire to fight for revenge and Grabowski's desperate need for survival. Throughout the war, involvement with friends, with espionage and smuggling bring him ever closer to that thin line that separates life from death.
Drawing on deeply personal experiences - for it is the story of Auerbach's own survival - Transformations and Escape are undiscovered masterpieces of twentieth century writing.
