A lively yet tragic novel about jazz, the dawn of psychoanalysis, and the Jewish experience, The Vienna Jazz Trio is framed by an interview with an aging Nathan Mentzel, who relates his life as a piano player and satirist. His story begins in cosmopolitan Vienna in the 1920s, where he and two friends form a jazz ensemble amid the ideological debates and growing anti-Semitism of the era, continues through the suffering and devastation of the Holocaust, and ends with a thrilling operation against two Nazis living in a luxury villa in Southern California. At times melancholy and always moving, The Vienna Jazz Trio speaks to the indomitable spirit of youth and the dignity of man.
