In a rich tapestry of styles, fantasy, and philosophical speculations, Marcel Möring leads us on a voyage through the dark heart of the 20th century and vivid exploration of loss and guilt. Loosely based on Dante's Inferno, this ambitious and enthralling novel - an in-depth study of Europeans' angst and fear after the Holocaust - follows Jacob Noah as he emerges from hiding in 1945. As he rebuilds his life, he patiently expands his business and becomes the city's most influential entrepreneur. Success, though, cannot alleviate his loneliness and suffering nor the tragedy of history. 40 years later finds himself on a journey through his soul. With another individual struggling with the implications of his Jewish identity and shared history of his people, Noah is able to truly understand the meaning of his own life and the tragedies he has experienced. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
