A counterpoint to Koch's recollections are his letters from Daria Hambourg, with whom he corresponded throughout the war. A London girl of bohemian temperament, Daria had unusual literary talents, and a distinguished, but restrictive family. Otto & Daria's parallel writings tell a universal story of conflict, diaspora, and unrequited love. Eric Koch is the author of fourteen books of fiction and six of non-fiction, including Hilmar and Odette, which received the Yad Vashem Prize for Holocaust Writing."--"@en ;
