epub The Lucky One epub

by Ray Kingfisher

For a long time, I have been drawn to books and films set around the Holocaust.It is a period of history that both appals and fascinates me.This prize-winning short story by Ray Kingfisher offers a perspective that is less frequently written about.

Susannah is the eponymous 'lucky one' and has lived almost a lifetime since surviving a World War II death camp.The story moves seamlessly from past to present and blurs reality with Susannah's 'visions' to nightmarish effect.Susannah, dying in the present day, decides to revisit the camp.Why does she do this?It's a complex issue as you might expect, but an imagined meeting with an SS guard suggests the fate that Susannah would perhaps have preferred over living a lifetime of guilt and wondering.

The lucky one here is anything but lucky and, as is the case with the best Holocaust fiction, this story hits you hard.A well-written, emotional read.
