I finally found a decent book. Quite a surprise, since my local branch library's new fiction section is 99% schlock.
It's about how a family that ran the Warsaw Zoo hid Jews during the Holocaust. It's not your usual ghetto memoir. It's a tale about animals and humanity. Maybe it's because I'm half Polish, but I did relate to the plight of Poland. The Poles were a conquered people only outdone by the Sicilians.
This book was recommended to me. I've decided that from now on I'm only reading books with personal recommendations; just going to the library is a waste of time.
