1947 – best non-fiction of 2017!

14 December 2017

Elisabeth Åsbrink’s 1947 has been picked as one of the best non-fiction titles published in the UK in 2017 by daily newspaper Metro. Anthony Cummins writes:

“From Sweden comes this globe-trotting factual narrative tracing the poisonous fallout from World War II with novelistic flair. With a reporter’s nose for detail and a crime writer’s sense of pace, Åsbrink’s account revisits contemporary hotspots from post-Raj India to British-ruled Palestine while tracking a star-studded cast including George Orwell (at work on Nineteen Eighty-Four) and Billie Holiday, arrested on drugs charges in New York.”
