Read full description of the books The Lucky One:For a long time, I have been drawn to books and films set around the Holocaust. It is a period of history that both appals and fascinates me. This prize-winning short story by Ray Kingfisher offers a perspective that is less frequently written about.
Susannah is the eponymous 'lucky one' and has lived almost a lifetime since surviving a World War II death camp. The story moves seamlessly from past to present and blurs reality with Susannah's 'visions' to nightmarish effect. Susannah, dying in the present day, decides to revisit the camp. Why does she do this? It's a complex issue as you might expect, but an imagined meeting with an SS guard suggests the fate that Susannah would perhaps have preferred over living a lifetime of guilt and wondering.
The lucky one here is anything but lucky and, as is the case with the best Holocaust fiction, this story hits you hard. A well-written, emotional read.
Read information about the authorI write stories in a few different genres, but my historical novels are the most successful to date.
The Sugar Men and Rosa's Gold are stories about the long lasting effects of the Holocaust, and I'm currently writing a third novel in a similar vein.
Matchbox Memories is a gentle comic drama, and Tales of Loss and Guilt is a diverse collection of early works short stories, which is a pretty representative mix of what I like to write.
I also write gritty thrillers as Ray Backley and silly comedies as Ray Fripp.
I live in Hampshire in the UK, and I love to hear from readers. Please take a look at www.raykingfisher.com, or email me at email@example.com, or even just send a Goodreads message.
