The cover of Alexander Wolff’s new memoir, “Endpapers”.

In his most recent work, Wolff tackles an entirely new subject: his own family. His grandfather, Kurt Wolff, was born in Germany of Jewish origin. After fleeing to New York to escape the Nazis, Kurt founded Pantheon Books, a notable publishing house. Kurt’s son – Alexander’s father – remained in Germany and was drafted into the German army.

Wolff tells their stories in his book “Endpapers: A Family Story of Books, War, Escape and Home.” The paperback edition was released in March. Wolff joined Vermont Edition to discuss the book’s research process in Germany and uncover the details of his complex family history.
