BOOK EXCERPT:

Hailed for its coiled eroticism and the moral claims it makes upon the reader, this mesmerizing novel is a story of love and secrets, horror and compassion, unfolding against the haunted landscape of postwar Germany. When he falls ill on his way home from school, fifteen-year-old Michael Berg is rescued by Hanna, a woman twice his age. In time she becomes his lover—then she inexplicably disappears. When Michael next sees her, he is a young law student, and she is on trial for a hideous crime. As he watches her refuse to defend her innocence, Michael gradually realizes that Hanna may be guarding a secret she considers more shameful than murder.

BOOK EXCERPT:

An exceptionally powerful novel exploring the themes of betrayal, guilt and memory against the background of the Holocaust. An international bestseller. For 15-year-old Michael Berg, a chance meeting with an older woman leads to far more than he ever imagined. The woman in question is Hanna, and before long they embark on a passionate, clandestine love affair which leaves Michael both euphoric and confused. For Hanna is not all she seems. Years later, as a law student observing a trial in Germany, Michael is shocked to realize that the person in the dock is Hanna. The woman he had loved is a criminal. Much about her behaviour during the trial does not make sense. But then suddenly, and terribly, it does - Hanna is not only obliged to answer for a horrible crime, she is also desperately concealing an even deeper secret. 'A tender, horrifying novel that shows blazingly well how the Holocaust should be dealt with in fiction' INDEPENDENT 'For generations to come, people will be reading and marvelling over Bernhard Schlink's The Reader' EVENING STANDARD 'Leaps national boundaries and speaks straight to the heart' NEW YORK TIMES

BOOK EXCERPT:

The shift toward the reader's task may be said to stem from a double source: the questioning of the sleuthlike approach to a text aiming at the discovery and explication of the author's intended meaning, coupled with the recognition that the work, liberated from its dependence on the authorial voice, will generate a wealth of meanings through acts of reading. Chapter 1 of this volume charts the conventions that operate at the threshold of the textual encounter as preliminary reading contracts which may shape ensuing operations. Chapter 2 shows the extent to which the reader's world knowledge is put to work in and by the decodification process. Chapter 3 sets out to outline how the reader's knowledge of genre and the intertextual repertoire is put to work. After exploring the areas that this hypothetical competence may cover, the study moves toward the related concept of performance in a final chapter entitled "Text Processing." Here again there is an assembly of perspectives through which the reading process is approached: the phenomenology of reading, text theory and semiotics, models of linguistic comprehension, and cognitive psychology have all been put to work in order to throw light on the complex operations presupposed by the act of reading.
