When Colonel Lewis Morgan arrives in Hamburg in 1946, the city is in rubble from hundreds of waves of Allied air attacks. Charged with the unenviable task of rebuilding the city and completing de-Nazification of its war-torn residents, he decided to begin by not evicting the previous occupants of his new German home. What appears to have been a symbolic decision becomes infinitely more serious and humanizing as members of the two very different families mingle, tangle, and embrace in different ways. An unputdownable novel by a talented young British novelist.
