The title poem of E.E. Jones’s first collection tells the story of an unremarkable day in August 1944, when nothing much happened: the weather was beautiful, a dog barked, and the women of Amsterdam went on making jam. The Incident is a book about what we fail to see and what we ned to remember, about History and Fascism, what our times make of us, and the violence we allow to be done to others – minorities, refugees, dissidents, asylum seekers, benefit claimants. These are stories of solidarity and resistance, told with tenderness and fury and a passionate commitment to a world still possible – Sylvia Pankhurst and Kier Hardie, Auden and Erika Mann; William Tyndale and Nye Bevan, the Peterloo dead and the Belgian Resistance fighters who in 1943 stopped a train bound for Auschwitz. At the heart of the book is a series of portraits of remarkable women who tried to resist, like Rosa Parks, Sophie Scholl, Anne Frank, and Jo Cox.
