In his most subtly provocative novel yet, the acclaimed author of The Innocent takes readers to the fall of the Berlin Wall--and the crumbling of a marriage. "A study of the fragile nobility of the human spirit in the face of the irrational, the terrible, and the miraculous."--Washington Post Book World.
"Subtle and unforgettable." —Voice Literary Supplement
