9781925240955: Good People

[Baram] asks what kind of people would choose to serve empires of falsehood with their eyes open and their minds sharp. Not monsters or even cynics, he answers in a pacey, plot-heavy novel of dramatic events and big ideas, but gifted storytellers fuelled by ordinary motives of love, loyalty or ambition.’ Economist

'Written with great talent, momentum and ingenuity.' Amos Oz

'One of the most intriguing writers in Israeli literature today.' Haaretz

'Good People has been showered with praise for its elegance prose and scope By putting the types of people who brought about the Second World War under a microscope, Baram creates an allegorical warning bell.' The Culture Trip

'Promising... reflects Baram's tremendous knowledge.' Publishers Weekly

'A richly textured panorama of German and Russian life This ample novel lives most memorably through Baram's vignettes of people, dwellings, cities, landscapes and the like that seem to lie, at times, at the periphery of its central concerns.' Sydney Morning Herald

A groundbreaker Riveting reading. Qantas Magazine

Astonishingly powerful [a] compelling, important story.’ The Listener, NZ

Precise and evocative, Good People is a riveting glimpse into a different place and a different time.’ Canberra Weekly
The tale of ordinary, middle-class lives sucked into a moral maelstrom. It is compulsive and profoundly disturbing.’ Sunday Star Times

It's late 1938. Thomas Heiselberg has built a career in Berlin as a market researcher for an American advertising company.

In Leningrad, twenty-two-year-old Sasha Weissberg has grown up eavesdropping on the intellectual conversations in her parents' literary salon.

They each have grand plans for their lives. Neither of them thinks about politics too much, but after catastrophe strikes they will have no choice.

Thomas puts his research skills to work elaborating Nazi propaganda. Sasha persuades herself that working as a literary editor of confessions for Stalin's secret police is the only way to save her family.

When destiny brings them together, they will have to face the consequences of the decisions they have made.

Good People is a tour de force that has been showered with praise in many countries.

Nir Baram was born into a political family in Jerusalem in 1976. He has worked as a journalist and an editor, and as an advocate for equal rights for Palestinians. He began publishing fiction when he was twenty-two, and is the author of five novels in Hebrew. Several have been translated into more than ten languages and received critical acclaim around the world. In 2010 he received the Prime Minister's Award for Hebrew Literature.

About the Author:

Nir Baram was born in Jerusalem in 1976. He has worked as a journalist, editor, and as an advocate for equal rights for Palestinians. He's the author of five novels. Good People is the first to be translated into English. Baram received the 2010 Prime Minister's Award for Hebrew Literature.

Jeffrey Green is a writer and translator living in Israel. He has a doctorate in Comparative Literature from Harvard, and has also published, among other things, a novel in Hebrew, a book of poetry and a book about translation.

Review:

'Baram uses intense geographical plotting and is chillingly eloquent...[GOOD PEOPLE] is tremendous. I read it in two sittings and I learned a lot. How does a man in his early 30's know how to write like this?'—The Australian
