"In this collection of short fiction, the author looks beyond the loss of loved ones and the effect of the era on her fellow Germans to the effect of the Holocaust on those who fled to California, New York, Paris, even the isolated forests of the Yucatan. Weil compares these emigrants to survivors of an atomic blast, who have lived beyond the initial explosion and considered the worst to be over, only to later sicken and suffer. The fugitives' lives are damaged, in some cases destroyed, by the aftershock of the Holocaust - by their inability to shed the culture of the country from which they have fled, from the intense memories of better times, and the constant intrusion of the ghosts of both victims and persecutors into their attempts to lead new, possibly happy, lives. The author's acerbic but rigorously honest gaze spares no one, not even herself."--book jacket

"Henze's first work of real note, the opera stands out for its use of strong jazz influence from a composer who had hitherto been associated with twelve tone technique. The piece is a reworking of the Manon Lescaut story, already adapted operatically by Auber, Massenet and Puccini, into a contemporary framework."--Wikipedia

3 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in German and held by 11 libraries worldwide
L'édition originale en langue américaine de ce roman très remarqué par la critique remonte à 1961. L'oeuvre se présente comme un roman policier (une parodie de ##Brighton Rock## de Graham Greene) mais, par sa perfection formelle et son ténébreux climat, elle évoque tout à fait ##Sanctuaire## de Faulkner. Belle présentation d'Albert J. Guerard
