NRC Handelsblad – Good People

November 11, 2012EN, NL

NRC Handelsblad – On the front page of the most important literary supplement in the Netherlands there was a 2 page review on Good People.

The novel also got 5 stars out of 5: “With Good People the young Israeli author Nir Baram has written about the terrors of living under the regimes of Stalin and Hitler. It is done so majestically that it reaches the same level as books by Varlam Shalamov and Vasily Grossman.”
