n unrepentant World War II
art thief and a Holocaust sur-
vivor disinterested in war repa-
rations are the unlikely protagonists
of Michael Pye's latest novel, The
Pieces From Berlin (Knopf; $24).
Pye weaves a complicated tale of
war and remembrance
in which he asks readers
to consider what we
choose when faced with
impossible choices. He
also details the rift
between generations
wanting to remember
and survivors who have
spent nearly 50 years
trying to forget.
Pye tells the story of
Lucia Muller-Rossi, an
Italian woman from a
good .family who finds
herself alone in Berlin
with her young son
Nicholas in the waning
days of the Third Reich.

shrewd, calculating mind as she plots
and secures her
survival as "a
brilliant kind of neutral" at a time

nationality — or lack of one — as

ately seeking Lucia's
help because of her
unusual status. They
beg her for a variety
of favors to procure
ration coupons,
transfer money inro
SWiss banks and
safeguard their
belongings in an
effort to keep them
out of German
hands.
In a chilling scene,
two Jewish neigh-
bors ask Lucia to
help them hide
some of their house-
hold furniture.
Almost immediately, she is having
drinks with one of Himmler's aides
and offering up her Jewish neighbors
in return for information about
securing warehouse space for her
growing cache of stolen treasures.
When the war ends, Lucia leaves
for Switzerland with a caravan of
