FROM THE PUBLISHERS OF STONER AND REVOLUTIONARY ROAD COMES REUNION Reunion is a little-known novel. But it is also a universal story of friendship. It is a book of great power, waiting to be discovered. On a grey afternoon in 1932, a Stuttgart classroom is stirred by the arrival of a newcomer. Middle-class Hans is intrigued by the aristocratic new boy, Konradin, and before long they become best friends. It's a friendship of the greatest kind, of shared interests and long conversations, of hikes in the German hills and growing up together. But the boys live in a changing Germany. Powerful, delicate and daring, Reunion is a story of the fragility, and strength, of the bonds between friends. 'Exquisite' Guardian 'I loved Reunion and found it very moving' John Boyne WITH AN AFTERWORD BY RACHEL SEIFFERT

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A brilliant work of art that deserves a far wider readership" -- Ian McEwan
"I loved Reunion and found it very moving. It's a rediscovered novella, only 80 pages long, a real gem about how friendship can be challenged by historical circumstance" -- John Boyne
"Quite simply, a perfect work of art. With the utmost delicacy and care, Uhlman distils all the rage and tragedy of the second world war into one brief childhood friendship, and the final line is the most shattering of any novel I know. It is one of those books that is an unfailing test of character: if you give it to someone, and they don't like it, you should sever all ties, and possibly call the police" -- Sarah Perry * Guardian, Book of the Year *
"I read it in a gulp...very powerful" -- Deborah Moggach
"A perfect little gem of a story with a kick in the tail - and a resonance that rings louder than ever just when you think the story is over" -- Meg Rosoff

“Remarkably swift, delicate and poetic”

In the afterword to this novel, Rachel Seiffert’s phrase puts it perfectly: “His restraint is formidable”. Sometimes the most difficult thing for a writer to achieve is restraint, the tendency to embellish being too... More

“Reunion”

This is one of the best books I have ever read. It is a relatively short story which I read in one sitting. I have never felt so much emotion after finishing a book. The ending is wonderful and I defy anyone not to... More

“A Perfect but Devastating Short Novel”

One of the most perfect books I have ever had the pleasure to read. This was recommended to me by a customer, and I had to admit that I had never heard of it at all. Being somewhat anal about such things I dislike... More
