review Famous Men Who Never Lived 109 Wherever Hel looks New York City is both reassuringly familiar and terribly wrong As one of the thousands who fled the outbreak of nuclear war in an alternate United States an alternate timeline she finds herself living as a refugee in our own not so parallel New York The slang and technology are foreign to her the politics and art unrecogniza. When an alternate Earth is threatened by nuclear war desperate refugees flee through an untested portal accepting the very real risk that there might not be anything on the other side for the possibility of safety When Hel arrives in a New York not too unlike her own safe and whole and alive it seems like a miracle Soon though the differences between this New York and her own New York creep in forcing Hel to confront the trauma of losing her home the choices she made to get here and whether she really was one of the lucky onesFamous Men Who Never Lived packs a punch It s a perfect reflection of our own times our own distrust of the Other of refugees complicated realities of survival loss Hel s obsession with the Pyronauts and its author and similarly the obsessions of other characters were well wrought and poignant Many uestions are left unanswered and futures uncertain just as it is for the refugees just as it is for Hel K Chess touches on a lot of themes and does so with delicate expertise never hitting you over the head or overwhelming you with anything I especially loved the excerpts of interviews from other refugees which helped to showcase the diversity of their experiences as diverse as any human experience reallyFMWNL is a uiet beautiful poignant exploration of humanity and a fantastic read
