"The Thief of Auschwitz is a stunning portrait of how love of family, of freedom, and of art can triumph over pure, relentless evil. For my money, it's the best and most powerful work of fiction ever written about the Holocaust.”
– Howard Frank Mosher, author of Walking to Gatlinburg
"A brave and ambitious debut, Finn stands on its own while giving new life and meaning to Twain’s novel, which has been stirring passions and debates since 1885…a triumph of imagination and graceful writing. Bookstores and libraries shelve novels alphabetically by authors’ names. That leaves Clinch a long way from Twain. But on my bookshelves, they’ll lean against each other. I think that Twain would welcome the company."
– USA Today
"In this masterful and compassionate novel...the prismatic narrative shifts time and point of view, and Clinch readily slips into the voices of his diverse cast of characters. Through evocative descriptions of the rural landscape, and by imbuing these odd men with a gentle nobility, Clinch has created a haunting, suspenseful story."
