All That I Am

Anna Funder

Fiction

*** Winner of the 2012 Miles Franklin Literary Award ***

When Hitler comes to power in 1933, a tight-knit group of friends and lovers become hunted outlaws overnight. United in their resistance to the madness and tyranny of Nazism, they flee the country. Dora, passionate and fearless; her lover, the greate playwright Ernst Toller; her younger cousin Ruth and Ruth's husband Hans, find refuge in London. Here they take inspiring risks in order to continue their work in secret. But England is not the safe-haven they think it is, and a single, chilling act of betrayal will tear them apart. Some seventy years later, Ruth is living out her days is Sydney, making an uneasy peace with the ghosts of her past, and a part of history that has all but been forgotten.

'A gripping story of love and betrayal. Dora is the most attractive fictional heroine in a long time.' New Statesman
