ADVANCED PRAISE for Six Thousand Miles to Home:

A fascinating story of a little-known chapter of the Second World War. It’s a tale of love and war, of unimaginable cruelty and unexpected kindness—hard to put down, difficult to forget.
— Gina Nahai, author of The Luminous Heart of Jonah S., Caspian Rain, Moonlight on the Avenue of Faith, Sunday’s Dance, and Cry of the Peacock
Here are the wages of authenticity: both the pervasive horror of a murderous era and the threatened yet valiant current of humanity. Kupperman puts you there—you see and hear and feel—and realize how a journey into the unimaginable occurs. An inspiring and remarkable tale.
— Baron Wormser, author of Tom o’ Vietnam, Legends of the Slow Explosion, The Poetry Life: Ten Stories, and The Road Washes Out in Spring
An enthralling historical novel, both tender and terrifying, about survival, tradition, and love. A breathtaking rendering of unforgettable characters.
— Eugenia Kim, author of The Calligrapher’s Daughter and The Kinship of Secrets
Six Thousand Miles to Home illuminates the historical record and conjures a world of man-made horror, where, every so often, cracks of exquisite light are made to shine through.
— Rachel Basch, author of The Listener, The Passion of Reverend Nash, and Degrees of Love
