Top ten books about freedom

Scottish writer Karen Campbell is the author of six novels, most recently Rise and This is Where I Am. One of her ten top books about freedom, as shared at the Guardian:
Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky

An incomplete novel set in occupied France, written by a woman whose voice was extinguished by the Nazis – yet lives on in an unfinished masterpiece. There can’t be any more poignant or eloquent tribute to freedom of expression than that.
Read about the other books on the list.

Suite Française is among Sarah Stodol's ten top lost-and-found novels, Max Hastings's ten best books on war, David Lodge's five best books about social class, and Howard Bloch's five best books about France.
