Reunion is just about the perfect novella In merely 74 pages Fred Uhlman captured the blossoming of an adolescent friendship the end of childhood and the darkness cast by political and social realities of life in Stuggart Germany just before Hitler s rise to power Looking back thirty years the narrator Hans Schwarz son of a Jewish doctor recalls how at age sixteen he had sought the friendship of Konradin Graf von Hohenfels a distinguished young count from an illustrious and powerful German family Of their first meeting on a grey dark winter s day in a grammar school Hans says He came into my life in February 1932 and never left it again These words take on greater poignancy when considered in light of the devastating changes that are to follow For Hans this boy was to be the source of my greatest happiness and greatest despair In his precise and tender prose Ulhman gave utterance to the beauty of friendship as it unfolds for these two boys each lonely in his own way It calls touchingly to mind that phase in adolescence when the need to belong and find acceptance is most pronounced and youths are given to romantic ideals of friendship that demand complete trust loyalty and self sacrifice It is wonderful to share the joys of a young friendship But the winds are changing as Hitler s influence begins to permeate every corner of German life Ulhman deliberately kept the political complexities in the background In the foreground Hans and Konradin s friendship bears the brunt of Hitler s disdain and persecution of the Jewish people This novella is than just a Bildungsroman It is a sterling testament of brotherly affection love courage and integrity Nowhere in this novella is this powerfully expressed than in the closing sentence It left me on the verge of tears I sat uietly for a long while and pondered why this story is titled Reunion And then I finally understood Read Reunion Ian McEwan hailed it A masterpiece of elegant economyIt is a brilliant work of art that deserves a far wider readership I cannot say it any better
