The Ventriloquists

COMING IN AUGUST. Based on true events, E.R. Zamzipoor's The Ventriloquists is an excellent addition to the canon of historical fiction based on World War II. A ragtag group of Belgian journalists and their comrades conscripted to produce a propagandized version of the local newspaper risk their own lives and turn the tables on the Nazis by printing one subversive edition that reaches the hearts and minds of the their community. Readers will find this novel has particular relevance in light of recent attacks on journalists in our supposed democratic country. This is powerful historical fiction. I couldn't put it down.
