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.
