At 87, Hans Eichner (Canada) was about to become a debut novelist for Anglophone readers. His powerful story of displaced European Jews was a bestseller in Austria and Germany in the ’90s, and has recently been published in Canada. The Austrian-born author of Kahn & Engelmann passed away in April 2009. Eichner’s widow, Kari Grimstad, reads from the novel in tribute to her husband’s life and work.
