Jay Basu has written an impressive first novel dealing with a young boy, Gracian Solka, coming of age in German occupied Silesia, 1939-1940. Germans in Silesia is nothing new. The Germans have been in Silesia since at least 1210, when they were invited to colonize the swampy land (slightly longer than the English colonists in Massachusetts).
In prose that is hauntingly spare and beautiful, Basu’s fable-like story, set in 1940s German-occupied Poland, is a tale both of loss of childhood innocence and fraternal love. Fifteen-year-old Gracian Sofka is a stargazer.
Jay Basu was born to an Indian father and a half-Polish, half-Russian mother. He graduated from Cambridge University in 1999.
