BeschreibungAtmospheric novel set in Prague. Ludvik is a man who has touched bottom. Eleven years earlier he left his country appalled by the poisonous spiritual and moral bankruptcy of East European communism. Now he is back. Not because the situation has improved, as the post-communist era has brought its own brand of cynicism and soullessness; but because he has been rejected by a woman and, like a wounded animal seeking refuge, he has come home. But home is a bleak and comfortless place where the heart is broken and the lover has lost all capacity to feel. Yet, when all seems hopeless, small miracles can occur, and salvation comes from the most unlikely quarters. Sylvie Germain's illuminated prose brings readers unerringly to the threshold of despair and enlightenment.
