really liked it

In this story of inter-war England and Germany, the inner lives of damaged individuals are played against the backdrop of damaged countries; self-obsession blinds people to the hurt of others; and no-one seems to be aware of what the (vividly described) calamitous events of the Munich beer hall putsch herald for the future. Powerful writing.

Lewis Weinstein My ongoing research for my novel-in-progress suggests that most people thought Hitler was pretty much a clown, and certainly thought he and the Nazis were through when the putsch so ingloriously failed and the leaders, including Hitler, were arrested for, among other charges, treason.
