Fiction • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1947

This novella, rescued from WWII, has recently been translated for the English listener. James Clamp narrates with a precise English accent that matches the matter-of-fact tone of this story of people who hide a Jew from the Nazis out of a sense of neighborliness. When the hidden Jew dies, the young Dutch couple that hides him struggles with how to dispose of the body in a way that won’t implicate them. Clamp's proper voice adds to the “comedy” found in the absurdity and small-mindedness of the characters. The author’s lighter take on a serious subject, along with Clamp’s narration, gives new insights into human nature. R.Z.R. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2011]
