When a black market deal brings her into connect with Robert, a Scottish research student at Leipzig University, she sees a way to deflect attention from her increasingly wide escape plans. Robert falls in love with her and stumbles into a complex world of shifting half-truths - one that will undo them both. More than a decade later, Robert returns to post-communist Leipzig in search of answers. Can he track Magda down? And will the past give up its secrets?

Lists Of Note
- Hardback - Canongate
Humans have been making lists for even longer than they've been writing letters. They are the shorthand for what really matters to us: our hopes and aspirations; likes and dislikes; rules for living and loving; records of our memories and reminders of the things we want to do before we die. Just as he did with 'Letters of Note', Shaun Usher has trawled the world's archives to produce a rich visual anthology that stretches from ancient times to present day. From a to-do list of Leonardo da Vinci's to Charles Darwin on the pros and cons of marriage or Julia Child's list of possible titles for what would later become an American cooking bible, 'Lists of Note' is a constantly surprising A-Z of what makes us human.
