A stunning novel about ordinary people living in extraordinary times.
Trudi is a Zweg--a dwarf--short, undesirable, different, the voice of anyone who ever tried to fit in. Eventually she learns that being different is a secret that all humans share--from her mother who flees into madness, to her friend Georg whose parents pretend he's a girl, to the Jews that Trudy harbours in her cellar.
