Set in London during the years of 1939-1942, when citizens had slim hope of survival, much less victory; and on the strategic island of Malta, which was daily devastated by the Axis barrage, Everyone Brave is Forgiven features little-known history and a perfect wartime love story inspired by the real-life love letters between Chris Cleave's grandparents. This dazzling novel dares us to understand that, against the great theater of world events, it is the intimate losses, the small battles, the daily human triumphs that change us most

Terror in London: beim Lokalderby von Arsenal gegen Chelsea fliegt in einer grauschwarzen Wolke das Tor davon, mitsamt der Heimtribüne dahinter. Mitten im Gewühl: die Erzählerin, eine der bezauberndsten und wahrhaftigsten Heldinnen der jüngeren Literaturgeschichte.

The other hand by Chris Cleave( Recording )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We don't want to tell you what happens in this book. It is a truly special story and we don't want to spoil it. Nevertheless, you need to know enough to buy it so we will just say this: It is extremely funny, but the African beach scene is horrific. The story starts there, but the book doesn't. And it's what happens afterwards that is most important. Once you have read it, you'll want to tell your friends about it. When you do, please don't tell them what happens either. The magic is in how it unfolds

Three novels from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Chris Cleave. Little Bee. This haunting, New York Times bestselling novel tells the story of an African refugee, nicknamed Little Bee, whose violent and courageous journey from a Nigerian beach to a suburban London home and back puts a stunning face on the worldwide refugee crisis. Incendiary. In an emotionally raw voice alive with grief, compassion, and startling humor, a woman mourns the loss of her husband and son at the hands of one of history's most notorious criminals. And in appealing to their executioner, she reveals the desperate sadness of a broken heart and a working-class life blown apart. Gold. Building on the tradition of Little Bee, Chris Cleave again writes with elegance, humor, and passion about friendship, marriage, parenthood, tragedy, and redemption
