Bestselling author Mitch Albom — known for the wildly successful “Tuesdays with Morrie” and other iconic books — started a new novel several years set partly during the Holocaust, called “The Little Liar.”
He had no idea, of course, that on Oct. 7, 2032, Hamas terrorists would launch an unprecedented attack against Israel and the Israeli people — viciously killing over 1,200 people, mostly civilians, and taking some 240 innocent people hostage. Most of those people remain captives more than six weeks since the attack.
“I started the book two years ago, so I can’t take any credit for the timeliness of the book now,” Albom told Fox News Digital in an interview via email during his travels over the past few weeks as his new novel was coming out.
“However,” said Albom, “I’ve been hearing from many people about how important this particular topic is during this troubling time.”
And “I believe the idea of hate, violence and deceptions involving such things is always a timely topic,” he said — “but perhaps even more so now.”
The new book is inspired by what actually happened to 50,000 Jewish people living in Greece during the Holocaust.
