London, 1983; [iv], 227pp.; bound, d.w. Booker prize-winning author Ruth Prawer Jhabvala’s brilliant, sharply ironic portrait of a small group of wealthy Europeans exiled in New York. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 021828
Through a rich mosaic of episodes, shifting intricately back and forth from the 1930s to the present day, the lives of three generations are traced.
Linked by the incessant longing for inner fulfilment, grandmother, mother, son and daughter pursue their selfish quests by very different routes.
Yet each is drawn, either by love or by hate, to the magnetic Leo Kellermann, former Adonis, guru, charlatan/genius and founder of the dubious Academy of Potential Development.
Brilliantly readable ( Auberon Waugh, Daily Mail)
The scenes are so precisely balanced and counterpoised that each enriches and illuminates ( Listener)
