Review

We are drawn in to share his surprise and then disbelief at the horrifying progress of events, all conveyed with an understated intimacy and dailiness that render them painfully close . . . riveting -- Lisa Appignanesi * Observer * Vivid and anguished . . . compulsive reading -- Richard Overy * Sunday Telegraph * A compelling, harrowing masterpiece * Independent * This memoir of a Jewish pianist who survived the war in Warsaw is one of the most powerful accounts ever written * Sunday Tribune * What really stays with the reader is the chilling, almost naive immediacy with which the story is told . . . The Pianist is an icy, nerveless but remarkably readable memoir that takes us as close as we are ever likely to travel to the day-to-day reality of living through terror * Sunday Times * You can learn more about human nature from this brief account of the survival of one man throughout the war years in the devastated city of Warsaw than from several volumes of the average encyclopaedia -- Gerald Jacobs * Independent on Sunday * A book so fresh and vivid, so heartbreaking, and so simply and beautifully written, that it manages to tell us the story of horrendous events as if for the first time . . . His account is hair-raising, beyond anything Hollywood could invent . . . Everything that has been most horrific in life in 20th-century Europe is encompassed in this exquisite memoir * Daily Telegraph *
