THE COSTA BOOK OF THE YEAR 2018 

Costa Biography Award Winner 2018

Synopsis

'Luminous, elegant, haunting - I read it straight through' Philippe Sands, author of East West Street Little Lien wasn't taken from her Jewish parents - she was given away in the hope that she might be saved. Hidden and raised by a foster family in Amsterdam during the Nazi occupation, she survived the war only to find that her real parents had not. Much later, she fell out with her foster family, and Bart van Es - the grandson of Lien's foster parents - knew he needed to find out why. His account of tracing Lien and telling her story is a searing exploration of two lives and two families. It is a story about love and misunderstanding and about the ways that our most painful experiences - so crucial in defining us - can also be redefined. 'Amazing, deeply affecting, will haunt you' Sunday Mirror 'Quite remarkable, deeply moving, absorbing' Penelope Lively



Bart van Es was born in the Netherlands and is bilingual in English and Dutch. He now lives with his family in England. He is a Professor of English Literature at the University of Oxford and a Fellow of St Catherine's College.
