Quotation of the Week: “Herr Andreas Kellerman”

“‘Your father told me how he and Anna were saved by the man whose life Max saved on the train in the Great War. How extraordinary. But you know, everybody who survived has an extraordinary story. Otherwise, he’d be dead.'”

Spoken by the character of “Herr Andreas Kellerman,” in Martin Fletcher’s new novel, The List. Emphasis added.

This week–marking the anniversary of the Kristallnacht–I’m not quoting a writer on writing or citing something from an interview. I’m taking something directly from Martin Fletcher’s new novel. For my full review of The List, please click here.

  1. So very true. A similar thought passed through my mind this past week in Ishinomaki as we met survivors of the March 11th earthquake and tsunami. One of the communities most devastated by those events it was shattering to see how no home or building went untouched. Clearly, a different situation in so many ways, but the sentiment expressed remains apt.
