From the Back Cover:


Max Bergmann, charismatic leader of the environmental movement, has disappeared. The last person to have heard from him is campaigning journalist Helena Latimer. Determined to trace the man who has so profoundly shaped her, she sets off for Germany, only to find herself entangled in a history as passionate in its excesses as it is in its purities.

'Dreams of Innocence' is a novel of grand scope, of Europe before the Great War through to the present day. A compelling love story in which the embrace of the ideal is as powerful as the charge of the erotic, it also tells of fathers and fatherlands, brotherhoods and male fantasies, and three women's struggle to define an identity in their midst.

'Memory and Desire' also available from HarperCollins Publishers

Acclaim for Lisa Appignanesi:
