The book of kings
Overlook Press, 1999/04/12 - 773 ページ
One of the publishing sensations of last year, and now sold in Germany, Spain, Holland, Italy, and the UK, James Thackara's The Book of Kings is set across the entire continent of Europe in the years shortly before and during World War II. Charged with the gorgeous ambiance of Hemingway's Paris and rivaling the scope of Dostoevsky and Melville, The Book of Kings tracks Germany's drift toward Nazism from 1932, when a quartet of students at the Sorbonne -- David and Johannes, both German; Justin, a French/Algerian scholarship student; and Duncan, an American with an attachment to "old" Europe -- shares an apartment on the Rue de Fleurus. Thackara brilliantly weaves the stories of these four men whose lives mirror the larger picture. The Book of Kings is a work of extraordinary vision and range magnificently fusing mythology and the inexorable events of history.
