Address Unknown by Kressman Taylor is an amazing little book.
The narrative consists of a series of letters exchanged between Max, a Jewish man living in California, and Martin, his German business partner and close family friend, recently returned to Germany; and this correspondence takes place shortly before Hitler takes power.
I noted that I had added this book to my"To Read" list on Jan 01st 2012 and only got around to reading it on Dec 30th 2012. Boy! did I leave the best wine until last. This tiny book really made an impression on me and it only took about 40 minutes to read it. It's the sort of book that makes you think and stays with you long after you have finished reading it.
In my opinion-THIS IS THE PERFECT SHORT STORY!
