After Midnight (Neversink) - Irmgard Keun WHY: recently re-published, this book was written in 1937 by a woman who had just fled Nazi Germany. The main characters are young and somewhat frivolous and the story is about them having to face "betrayal, death, and the heartbreaking reality of being young in an era devoid of innocence or romance."
