Susanna Moore talks about her new novel, The Life of Objects. It’s about a 17-year-old Irish woman who joins the Berlin household of Felix and Dorothea Metzenburg. Art collectors, and friends to the most fascinating men and women in Europe, the Metzenburgs introduce Beatrice to a world in which she finds more to desire than she ever imagined. But the threat of Nazi terror, the deportation and murder of Jews, and the hordes of refugees fleeing the advancing Red Army cast a dark shadow.
