"Opa Nobody is a masterful layering of lives, a beautifully readable and often poetic tracing of the heart lines between grandfather and granddaughter, old leftie and new, Nazi-era German rabble-rouser and present-dd American activist... The research in Opa Nobody is prodigious, the history fascinating, the quest for justice inspiring, but the lives here are what will keep you reading,page after page, long into the clamorous night." Bill Roorbach, author of Temple Stream and Big Bend "Sonya Huber is a writer of remarkable talent and courage. With great passion and skill, she resurrects her grandfather in this story of a family in the years leading up to and away from Hitler's Third Reich. Painstakingly researched and richly imagined, Opa Nobody is a brave book of politics, history, and love--a book filled with an irrepressible embrace of humanity." Lee Martin, author of The Bright Forever and From Our House "Sonya Huber begins her innovative memoir with a question: 'Why try to change the world? ' Thus begins an intimate dialogue with her long-dead, activist grandfather--part fact, part imagination--that delves into the nature of political resistance and the toll this stance takes on those intrepid souls who dare to live on the edge of change." Brenda Miller, author of Season of the Body and co-author of Tell It Slant
