One of the great classics of exile literature, Transit brilliantly captures Segher's own experiences escaping from Nazi Germany. A young German is asked to deliver a letter to a writer, a favour that takes the unnamed protagonist on a journey through France to Marseille in late 1940s. The reading group will explore some of the themes raised and the cultural and historical context in which it was written.
