OMG – I am so much more excited about the other audio project that RA is apparently cooking up.
This is not contemporary either, but this sounds like a truly interesting book. The Tattooist of Auschwitz is not a work of fiction but a biography/documentary of sorts, written by Australian author Heather Morris who interviewed the *actual* tattooist of Auschwitz and got the project published thanks to a Kickstarter campaign. There is a video on the Kickstarter page which gives you the story in a nutshell.
What an interesting project. I can’t wait to hear more about this!
