Once

OnceMorris Gleitzman has presented a fresh perspective of wartime Europe in his novel Once. The darkness of the holocaust is thinly veiled behind the narrative voice of the young Jewish boy Felix Salinger. Events spiral out of control in Felix’s life and the reader is forced to confront their own fears and presumptions about hate and revenge.
