Novel, History. A best seller in Europe, this book has been compared to Gone With the Wind by many leading reviewers. It has the same sweep, the same power, two fascinating main characters, and an intimate portrait of the end of an overstayed society. This book has the breadth of life itself, the bigness is in itself the character of the novel. Translated from the German by Richard & Clara Winston. (650 Pgs.) DJ, Near VVGAUTHOR: J.
