#75 — Mischling

Mischling by Affinity Sonar

Rating: 4/5
  • A historical fiction novel about a set of twin girls subjected to various medical experiments which were conducted under the direction of Josef Mengele during the Holocaust
  • I can’t imagine the difficulty of writing fiction about real people and real events, especially one so horrific. How do you honor the narratives that already exist by the people who actually lived through them, while using fiction to expand upon and speculate on perspectives that either don’t exist or not articulated in memoirs?
