At the center of this pyrotechnically accomplished novel of ideas--winner of the Whitbread Award--are Max and Eleanor, who meet at an orgiastic clash of Nazi and communist youth in Weimar Germany. Their ensuing love affair takes them across landscapes that range from Stalin's Russia to Los Alamos on the eve of the atomic age and into the orbit of such extraordinary characters as Albert Einstein.

Review:

"A gigantic achievement that glows and grows long after it is put aside." - "Independent on Sunday" "An expansive and liberating adventure of tests, quests, miracles and coincidences--It stands as a well-weathered, very benign, widespreading kind of tree, drawing sustenance from the dark earth of a 20th-century experience, and allowing all kinds of unexpected illuminations to shine through." - "Observer" "A major novel--profound--frequently funny, sometimes painful, sometimes moving that asks fundamental questions about the nature of experience." - "The Scotsman"
