The Girl in the Bunker:

1945, Berlin: one little girl wants to protect her family—and her Uncle Adolf.

When 12-year-old Helga Goebbels walks into Adolf Hitler's underground shelter, she expects to emerge as the most important girl in the victorious German Empire. Bewildered by the lack of celebrations, Helga defies her father's orders to stop asking questions. Horrified to discover how many lies she's been told, and how obediently she believed and repeated them, she finally accepts that Uncle Adolf has lost the war, and runs away. Realizing she's the only person willing to save her mother and her five younger siblings from the invading Russians, as well as from her father's demented loyalty, she sets in motion a plan to escape from Berlin. This stunning, cinematic novel takes us to the dark heart of Nazi Germany, exploring the downfall of the Nazi regime through the eyes of a child who witnessed it first-hand.

1945. Berlino.  Una bambina vuole proteggere la sua famiglia. E suo zio Adolf. 

Un'emozionante rivisitazione degli ultimi giorni del Terzo Reich, raccontata attraverso gli occhi della figlia maggiore di Joseph Goebbels, uno dei più importanti gerarchi nazisti. 

Quando la dodicenne Helga Goebbels entra nel rifugio sotterraneo di Adolf Hitler, si aspetta di emergere come la ragazza più importante della vittoria dell'Impero tedesco. Disorientata dalla mancanza di celebrazioni, Helga sfiderà gli ordini del padre di smettere di fare domande? Sconvolta nello scoprire quante bugie le sono state dette, e come obbedientemente ci aveva creduto, finalmente intuisce che lo zio Adolf ha perso la guerra, e fugge. Rendendosi conto che lei è l'unica persona disposta a salvare sua madre e i suoi cinque fratelli più piccoli dagli invasori russi, contro la demente fedeltà di suo padre, mette in moto un piano per fuggire da Berlino.

In La ragazza nel bunker, viene esplorata la caduta del regime nazista attraverso gli occhi di una bambina. Questo romanzo ci porta nel cuore oscuro della Germania nazista e in una storia che nessuno di noi potrà mai dimenticare.

The Naming of Cancer

The Naming Of Cancer by Tracey S Rosenberg is Neon‘s very first chapbook. This fourteen-poem volume begins in a hospital, and from there explores the experience of cancer from a multitude of perspectives, from the person struggling to survive the disease to the spouse pacing in the waiting room, the oncologist doubting their own ability to diagnose, and even the cancer cells themselves, mourning their host body even as they destroy it. The Naming Of Cancer is anything but an easy read, but is certainly a necessary one.

Lipstick is Always a Plus

A debut poetry collection which touches on romance, regrets, and miracles, sometimes all at once. Although it’s out of print at Stewed Rhubarb, Tracey might have copies - please get in touch via the contact page if you’re interested.

Lipstick is Always a Plus is varied in its content, and the poems like lipstick seem to conceal something recognisably universal underneath their surfaces.
