One of those phrases I would like to have written

“Janusz looked up at (his father’s) steady face, settled in its white starched collar like an egg in an eggcup,”

Another phrase refers to women machinists. “Each woman watches her needle stitch a path through the day.”

Beautifully written, spellbinding book. I couldn’t put it down.

Stupid me, forgot to name the book!
