Product description


[An] eminently readable tome full of splendid anecdotal detail. Mr. Blom's ability to convey a mood and to synthesize complex issues, is admirable... Anyone reading this book today in the context of our own culture of doubt will feel an immediate affinity to the anxious and even desperate celebration of life that it portrays --Wall Street Journal

A fluent, often entertaining account of the period --New York Times

[A] thoughtful portrait of the interwar years... this well-written account brings a refreshing clarity to such uncertain times. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

A book to be absorbed, marveled at and admired for the wide range of research linking events and thoughts. --Kirkus Reviews

Philipp Blom was born in Hamburg in 1970. After some years in Vienna, he moved to Oxford where he obtained a PhD in Jewish philosophy. He has worked in publishing and as a journalist and translator in both London and Paris. He lives in Vienna with his wife Veronica Buckley.
