Summary: Tom arrives at Donostia prison in Southern France and falls into the orbit of another story: The Song of Roland. Unfortunately for Tom, it's a story that ends with a massacre. Tom discovers the true meaning of 'out of the frying pan' after his escape from Donostia jail takes him to Stuttgart in 1940, a ghost city inhabited by the master liar of the Third Reich, Josef Goebbels, and a tortured soul who's crying out for rescue, or death.

My rating: 9/10.

♥ When a book is read, an irrevocable thing happens - a murder, followed by an imposture. The story in the mind murders the story on the page, and takes its place.

♥ "Do you believe that shit? Or do you just peddle it?"

"I believe that others should believe it. Beliefs are collars to which leashes can be attached."

♥ "Every story has a negative space, mister rabbit. Things it can't acknowledge. Truths it can imply, or flirt with, but never say out loud. One way of writing for children - her way - is to try to be a child yourself. And then, if you do that... The negative space is enormous.

Grief. Pain. Betrayal. Mortality. You have to pretend you don't know. To suppress the things you learned as you grew up. To slip back into the garden by being small enough to walk under the door. But you can't make the scary things disappear. You can only lock them away where nobody sees them."
