An avid member of the Hitler Youth in 1940s Vienna, Johannes Betzler discovers his parents are hiding a Jewish girl named Elsa behind a false wall in their home. His initial horror turns to interest—then love and obsession. After his parents disappear, Johannes is the only one aware of Elsa’s existence in the house and the only one responsible for her fate.

By turns disturbing and blackly comic, Christine Leunens’s captivating and masterful novel examines this world of truth and lies, laying bare the darkest corners of the human soul.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A vivid and deeply compelling novel, Caging Skies is an existential battle of moral and ethical extremes. Christine Leunens is an adept and eloquent storyteller.”

    Georgia Hunter, New York Times bestselling author

  • “The best part of this interesting novel is its ability to show parts of our history which others dismiss: why suffering can make some people more sensitive but others more cruel, and how a war, such an outrage to human dignity, blurs the line between the victorious and defeated.”

    Elle (France)

  • “A beautiful novel, powerful, different, and ambitious. It explores…a love so total that it locks up, isolates, and colonizes the partner. An unforgettable book.”

    Le Monde (Paris)

  • “A novel that breaks all the rules. In spite of this, or maybe because of it, the result is a disturbing and gripping novel that has haunted me ever since I finished reading it.”
