  • About the Edition

    Emil and Hannah live their lives amid the turmoil of 20th-century history. Emil, a German veteran of the Great War, has returned home to a disturbed nation. As inflation and unemployment edge the country near collapse, Emil"s involvement with the resistance ultimately forces him from his family and his home. Hannah, soaked in the many languages of her upbringing as a Russian Jew in the West End of London and intent on experiencing the world, leaves home for Europe, traveling into a continent headed again towards total war. In Brussels, she meets the devastated Emil, who has just crossed the border on foot from Nazi Germany, leaving tragedy in his wake. All too briefly, they make a life in England before war strikes, and Emil, an enemy alien, is interned and then sent away. Hannah, determined to find him, prepares herself for a lonely and dangerous journey across the seas. Hannah and Emil is a moving love story riven by the powerful currents of history - an inspiring story of courage, conviction, and love.

    The narrative drive loses some of its power in Australia when the action gets further away from, well, the action, but the book then becomes purely about Hannah and Emil, and their tortured path. Hannah & Emil ‘The judges were impressed with the author’s ability to render, with measured vividness, the lives of individuals within cataclysmic historic events where safety is hard-won and exceptional. Hannah and Emil is an extended affirmation of the endurance of belief in work, love and human dignity.’.

    Emil is interned and transported. Hannah crosses the seas, desperately seeking Emil’s release. Belinda Castles’ use of the story of a present-day Sydney, Australia resident, Flora, as an overall framing device for the plot works brilliantly. It adds much realism to the unfolding of Hannah’s and Emil’s story. HANNAH & EMIL By Belinda Castles Allen & Unwin, $ BELINDA Castles' The River Baptists is another in the line of excellent winners of the Vogel award for the best as yet unpublished.

    Hannah Emile is the eponymous, San Francisco-based line from Hannah Tatar. Effortlessly blending minimalism, necessity, and easy style, Hannah Emile lovingly creates heartfelt, handmade leather goods, in a range of muted and bright colors. Scroll back to top. Home; About.

Hannah’s sense of justice and her love for Emil make her generously inclined towards Ava. The cover of Hannah and Emil, with its stock image of a laughing couple, does not do justice to the novel’s psychological depth.

Given the illness and trauma Emil experiences, the carefree image does not match the couple evoked in its pages. Hannah & Emil is a moving love story of courage and conviction - riven by the powerful currents of history.
