Peter Filkins’s H. G. Adler: A Life in Many Worlds is one of the first major works to be published about this influential writer. A survivor of Theresienstadt and Auschwitz, Adler published two dozen books of poetry, fiction, social science, history, and religion that detail the story of the Holocaust and analyze its influence on our world today. Filkins taps correspondence, broad historical research, and unpublished manuscripts to tell the story of how Adler lived through his times, and his effort to maintain human dignity amid systematic oppression, political corruption, and insufferable duress.
