At the heart of this powerful and passionate novel is the figure of a memorable woman- Melanie, mother and lover, middle-aged, eccentric, courageous, often hilariously unpredictable-and deeply marked by her internment as a child in a Nazi camp.MoreAt the heart of this powerful and passionate novel is the figure of a memorable woman- Melanie, mother and lover, middle-aged, eccentric, courageous, often hilariously unpredictable-and deeply marked by her internment as a child in a Nazi camp. Behind Melanies trauma lies the extraordinary story of how a young American girl became an internee at the Nazi camp of Drancy in Paris-the way-camp to Auschwitz.

The humanity and friendship of an English boy, Christopher Lewis, and her self-appointed protector, Jakob Bronski, help her survive. Years later, she is able to offer Bronski, now an elderly, heroic Russian dissident and a veteran of a Soviet hospital, a home with her family in Canada. As Jakob-and Christopher-re-enter her life, the past swiftly upsets Melanies precarious balance, and she must confront the absurdity of trying to balance good and evil, guilt and love, duty and desire. Emotional Arithmetic is a novel of tenderness and passion, of memory and hope, and a love story that draws us deeply into the shadows the past throws upon the present.
