1947 chosen as one of the best books of 2018

6 December 2018

Elisabeth Åsbrink’s 1947, Where now begins has been chosen as one of the best books of the year 2018 by American NPR (National Public Radio).

From Nancy Pearls review:

“It’s just one of those books that makes you want to major in history. It is one of the best books, certainly the best nonfiction book, that I’ve read recently. I think the subtitle, Where Now Begins, really speaks to one of the things that makes this book so important: The echoes of 1947 are resonating very, very clearly today.”
