Review
------

"A startling, clear-eyed, and unflinching examination of growing up as a Jewish girl during the Holocaust. . . . A
deeply moving and significant work that raises vital questions about cultural representations of the Holocaust and
searches for what it means to be a survivor." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Stunning contemplation of human relationships, power, and the creation of history through the prism of one woman's
Holocaust survival. . . . Kluger dives in and out of her narrative to consider such topics as her imperfect relationship
with her family, her creation of herself as a social being, and the encounters and relationships she's had with Germans
since the war. . . . A work of such nuance, intelligence, and force that it leaps the bounds of genre."—Kirkus (starred
review)

"A stunning autobiography, charting the blurred borders of a child, a daughter, a woman . . . a scholar, and a Jew."
—Booklist

"An unforgettable example of humanity." —Le Monde

"Deftly combining her own compelling narrative with a rigorous commentary . . . adds a spirited and original voice to .
. . Holocaust literature." —Library Journal

"A book of breathtaking honesty and extraordinary insight." —Los Angeles Times Book Review

"One of the ten best books of 2001. . . . Extraordinary. . . . Amazing. . . . Among the reasons that Still Alive is such
an important book is its insistence that the full texture of women's existence in the Holocaust be acknowledged, not
merely as victims. . . . [Kluger] insists that we look at the Holocaust as honestly as we can, which to her means being
unsentimental about the oppressed as well as about their oppressors." —Washington Post Book World

"A literary autobiography as extraordinary as it is refined, [Still Alive] rightfully belongs . . . side by side with
the works of Primo Levi, Elie Wiesel, and Imre Kertesz." —L'Unita (Italy)
