Fifty years later bandmates Sid and Chip return to Berlin for the premiere of a documentary about the band. Sid is forced to confront his role in Hiero's arrest.
It's a story about those we seldom hear about, those non Jewish victims of the nazis in World War II.
I have difficulties with novels written in dialect and/or slang and this perhaps made me slow to warm up to Half-Blood Blues. By the end though I found myself drawn in to the story and the tension between the youthful, vulnerable Hiero and the envious, devious Sid. Esi Edugyan has written the definitive Afro-German novel. I recommend it.
