It’s late 1938.

Thomas Heiselberg has built a career in Berlin as a market researcher for an American advertising company.

In Leningrad, twenty-two-year-old Sasha Weissberg has grown up eavesdropping on the intellectual conversations in her parents’ literary salon.

They each have grand plans for their lives. Neither of them thinks about politics too much, but after catastrophe strikes they will have no choice.

Thomas puts his research skills to work elaborating Nazi propaganda. Sasha persuades herself that working as a literary editor of confessions for Stalin’s secret police is the only way to save her family.

When destiny brings them together, they will have to face the consequences of the decisions they have made.

Nir Baram’s Good People has been showered with praise in many countries. With its acute awareness of the individual amid towering historical landscapes, it is a tour de force: sparkling, erudite, a glimpse into the abyss.

Nir Baram was born into a political family in Jerusalem in 1976. His grandfather and father were both ministers in Israeli Labor Party governments. He has worked as a journalist and an editor, and as an advocate for equal rights for Palestinians. He began publishing fiction when he was twenty-two, and is the author of five novels, including The Remaker of Dreams , Good People and World Shadow . His novels have been translated into more than ten languages and received critical acclaim around the world. He has been shortlisted several times for the Sapir Prize and in 2010 received the Prime Minister’s Award for Hebrew Literature. Text will publish a work of reportage by Nir Baram in 2017.

‘Quite possibly, Dostoyevsky would write like this if he lived in Israel today.’ Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

‘Written with great talent, momentum and ingenuity…it expands the borders of literature to reveal new landscapes.’ Amos Oz

‘One of the most intriguing writers in Israeli literature today.’ Haaretz

‘_ Good People_ rewards the reader’s patience while mining a tragic sense of irony that extends all the way to its title.’ Big Issue

‘Baram uses intense geographical plotting and is chillingly eloquent…[ Good People ] is tremendous. I read it in two sittings and I learned a lot. How does a man in his early 30s know how to write like this?’ Australian

‘_ Good People_ is a richly textured panorama of German and Russian life…This ample novel lives most memorably through Baram’s vignettes of people, dwellings, cities, landscapes and the like that seem to lie, at times, at the periphery of its central concerns.’ Age/Sydney Morning Herald

‘A groundbreaker…Riveting reading.’ Qantas Magazine

Good People is the tale of ordinary, middle-class lives sucked into a moral maelstrom. It is compulsive and profoundly disturbing.’ Sunday Star Times

‘Precise and evocative, Good People is a riveting glimpse into a different place and a different time.’ Canberra Weekly

‘Astonishingly powerful…[A] compelling, important story.’ New Zealand Listener

‘Chillingly captures the terrors and tensions of life under Stalin and Hitler. The chapters set in Russia are particularly effective, carrying the suspense of a spy thriller. Nir Baram explores the frightening speed and ease with which ordinary people become functionaries in totalitarian societies.’ TLS  

’_ Good People_ is a subtle, original, and fascinating take on the wartime story. We forget that the brutality was as much a bureaucratic effort as a military one. We forget that even the most massive, most evil forces are comprised of moving human parts. If Good People has a moral, it is this: the totalitarian state will attempt to possess the individual by co-opting his (
