Margaret McMullan’s Where the Angels Lived, begins as the discovery of a long-lost relative while visiting Israel’s Holocaust Museum and transforms into a journey to Hungary in search of answers regarding her mother’s Jewish heritage. McMullan pens a story that straddles the line between memoir and reportage that Joyce Carol Oates calls “vividly realized, emotionally engaging prose… Where the Angels Lived is a powerful testament of familial mourning as well as a vision of 20th century European history that is both searing and uplifting.” Sponsored by Fairfax Library Friends and the Friends of the Oakton Library.
