Rare is the memoir that reaches past the boundaries of the author's own mind and connects readers with the mind of the past. Church's second offering does so with delicate flashes of poignancy, bolstered by vivid images of haunted places and forgotten people. In these pages the often distant and inaccessible dreamscape of the Holocaust is brought home with striking intimacy. Church's firsthand experiences with that dark history, wrought in vulnerable honesty, are only strengthened by his considerable talent for strong prose.'Return Not Desired' is an essential volume for anyone seeking an understanding of the nature of human suffering, and the indomitable will of humanity to see the light of hope in even the most dismal of circumstances.
