Hitler, My Neigbor  (Other Press, New York), written from the viewpoint of Edgar as a child/teenager and covering the period 1929-1939, has just been published in the US. An excerpt has been published in Time magazine (online) and People magazine (online).

“Edgar plays with toys, listens to his mother playing piano, and eavesdrops on adult conversations between his father (the director of an academic publishing house) and his famous uncle, author Lion Feuchtwanger. […] An exceptionally powerful and emotionally charged story.” New York Journal of Books

“The title of this memoir says it all. A young Jewish boy growing up in Munich in the 1930s, Feuchtwanger writes about living across the street from Hitler, the future mass murderer he could see through his window.” New York Times Book Reviews, New and Noteworthy
