NO EXIT

***

I’m writing a historical novel about events in Germany and Poland in the Nazi years. The major characters are a German boy who becomes a Nazi and a Polish girl who becomes a victim. Their story, and their relationship, unfolds against a background neither can escape.

The title is taken from a powerful play by Jean Paul Sartre written in 1944.

    I doubt that “No Exit” will tell prospective readers on first glance that this novel is set in the Third Reich era. The title as such is short and concise, but make sure you have a big swastika or something on the cover to make clear in what what era the novel is set.
