Description

"Deftlystructured and . . . seamless." —Globe and Mail (Toronto)
 
"[A]nuanced and layered portrait of betrayal. . . . The strength of Far to Golies in Pick's ability to show precisely why one person could turn on another,how a single word spoken on impulse could have devastating results." —MontrealGazette

Alison Pick, acclaimed author of The Sweet Edge, delivers the moving and suspenseful story of an affluentJewish family in Czechoslovakia at the onset of World War II, and the governesswho forever alters their future when she seeks shelter in their midst.Interwoven with a present-day narrative revealing each character’s fates after thewar, Far to Go is an emotionallyvivid, masterfully wrought narrative that the Montreal Gazette calls, "an intriguing experiment in the art ofstorytelling."

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 28, 2011 – In her second novel (after The Sweet Edge), Pick tackles the Holocaust with the story of a young Jewish family struggling to survive as the Nazis invade Czechoslovakia. Throughout 1938 and 1939, Pavel and Anneliese Bauer endure increasingly terrifying attacks on their dignity, freedom, and lives, clinging to a hope that the madness will soon end. Meanwhile, a present-day Holocaust historian (who remains awkwardly unidentified for some time), specializing in the Kindertransport and the many children it helped to escape from Czechoslovakia, takes a personal interest in the Bauers. Letters culled from the historian's files, written by people who were close to the Bauers, effectively punctuate the novel, but Pick's shuffling gamble with point-of-view produces mixed results. For instance, Marta, who both propels the tale and plays a significant role in it, is sometimes so na ve as to be unconvincing. But period details are authentic and well presented, as are the family's suffering and grief.
