Feature Book By Peter Golden

Nothing is Forgotten

Nothing is Forgotten

From the beloved author of Comeback Love and Wherever There Is Light, Peter Golden’s NOTHING IS FORGOTTEN (Atria Books | On Sale: April 10, 2018) is the haunting tale of a young man searching for himself in the present and discovering the answers are hidden in the past.

In 1962, Michael Daniels—or Misha Danielov, as he’s referred to by his doting Russian-Jewish grandmother—is at loose ends until he begins hosting an underground radio show in New Jersey. Spinning the rock’n’roll music that is redefining his generation and establishing himself as the “Mad Russian,” he feels alive for three hours every night while on the air.

To Michael’s surprise, his satires of USSR leader Nikita Khrushchev make the show a local hit, while unbeknownst to him, half a world away, he is picking up loyal listeners in the Soviet Union. There, Yulianna Kosoy, a war orphan in her mid-twenties, is smuggling coveted goods into the country with her savvy, kind-hearted guardian who found her huddled in a forest after a German attack.

As Michael’s radio show is taking off, he discovers his grandmother shot to death in her candy store. No one knows why anyone would harm such a warm, generous woman, but Michael gradually learns that there is far more to his grandmother’s life than he suspected—from secret bank accounts and a connection to Picasso to the horrors of Nazi concentration camps, and a family lost in the chaos of war. Michael’s search for answers will take him to Munich, Amsterdam, Paris, the Riviera, and to Russia—where he meets Yuli, whose heartbreaking story connects to his own in ways he never could have imagined.

Featuring Peter Golden’s signature “vivid characters and strong storytelling” (The Washington Post), NOTHING IS FORGOTTEN changes our understanding of the impact of World War II on its survivors and their descendants, and will appeal to fans of novels by Anita Diamant and Kristin Hannah.
