Praise for Paper Love

"Elegant and moving...Wildman who belongs to the third generation of Holocaust writers, and the final generation to have contact with survivors, turns a family story into a universal, historical one, and answers questions about how we can find new ways to talk about the Holocaust and its memory." -- The New Yorker

a "feat of historical detective work"... "terrific urgency and novelistic compassion" -- Vogue

"Ignore anyone who tells you there is nothing more to be said about the Holocaust, and no new ways of telling the tragedy. Sarah Wildman's gripping, tender, beautifully painful book gets to the heart of the matter through matters of the heart. And along with the pathos and pain, there is profound and honest thoughtfulness too" 
Simon Schama, author of The Story of the Jews

"In this captivating and elegantly written book, Sarah Wildman uses the story of a single, fascinating but utterly normal woman to illuminate the tragedy of millions murdered during the Holocaust. Though the themes are universal—family, memory, myth—what makes this remarkable book shine is the way Wildman brings to life a person lost to history, making us care desperately both for her and for her vanished world."
Ayelet Waldman, author of Love and Treasure

Chat with Sarah about your upcoming book project:

“Writing can be such a lonely journey and we need to find community to persevere. During the course of work on my most recent book I was fortunate enough to connect with Sarah, whose support and advice helped guide my research. I thank her quietly every day as I complete my manuscript.” New York Times Best Selling author, Julie Metz
