The visible world by Mark Slouka( )

Thus this novel explores a problem familiar to us all, but perhaps especially acute for children of transplanted parents: How do you come to understand a history that has shaped you, but that you have not experienced? The novel evokes the wistful atmosphere of an immigrant community, where bits of Czech fairy tales overlap stories of the famous attempt to assassinate the Nazi leader Reinhard Heydrich
