Jennifer Cody Epstein: Wunderland
Sunday, Feb. 16 @ 1:00

With a sense of history that reverberates powerfully into the present, award-winning novelist Jennifer Cody Epstein’s Wunderland (Crown; 4/23/19) seamlessly weaves three  timelines and multiple perspectives into a page-turning narrative, one that delves deep into the secrets mothers keep from their daughters, the lies we tell ourselves, and the human potential for both unspeakable evil and immense goodness. An enthralling exploration of Nazi Germany and its legacy, this intricate portrait of a friendship riven by the tides of history will resonate with fans of Jessica Shattuck’s The Women in the Castle and Georgia Hunter’s We Were the Lucky Ones.

Inspired by the real-life memoir of a former Hitler Youth member, Wunderland is an ambitious, multigenerational saga that crosses decades, borders, and war zones. Epstein draws readers into the lives of complex, flawed characters whose worlds intersect in ways both life-affirming and tragic—right up until the novel’s stunning and deeply satisfying conclusion. In the process, she bravely navigates the lengths to which we may go in search of acceptance and redemption.

Jennifer Cody Epstein is the author of the international bestseller The Painter from Shanghai and The Gods of Heavenly Punishment, winner of the 2013–14 Asian Pacific Librarians Association Honor award for outstanding fiction. She has written for The Wall Street Journal, Vogue, Self, Mademoiselle, and many others.
