Deviation

Luce D'Eramo

£9.99

Released 30th January 2020

‘Could hardly be more relevant’ Financial Times

‘Compelling’ Lucy Hughes-Hallett, Guardian

Lucie has been brought up by bourgeois parents as a passionate young fascist. At the age of eighteen, she decides to volunteer in the Nazi labour camps in Germany. Intending to disprove what she sees as the lies that are being told about Nazi-Fascism, she instead encounters the horrors of life there – and is changed completely. Shedding her identity, she joins a group of deportees being sent to Dachau concentration camp. In October 1944 she escapes the camp and wanders a Germany devastated by allied bombardments. She will spend the rest of her life in pursuit of the truth of what happened in those months.

Translated into English for the first time, Deviation is about the repression of memory, and one woman’s attempt to make sense of the hell she has lived through.
