Description
Information
The Kaiser's Germany, in all its horror and all its comicality, is the setting of this powerfully tragic book which yet scintillates with brilliance of wit and close observation. The ghastliness of Prussian militarism, the lush vacuity of rich Jewish rentier life in Berlin, the fastidious eccentricity of an aristocratic family which, to its consternation, suddenly finds itself involved with both these milieux - all these incompatibles are reconciled with the authority of a great artist.
'New, cool, witty, elegant... We salute a new artist.'
Evelyn Waugh

'Dialogue springs with life from the page, and the social and political milieu of a vanished age is brilliantly realised. Bedford is by turns hilarious and ironic in the best sense: compassionate and yet clear-eyed.'
