"With stunning frankness, this partly auto-biographical novel by a postwar German writer renders all the tension and ambivalence of the parent-son relationship. The father's death triggers a flood of recollection which in their force, vividness, and density of narrative are unique in modern writing. The father was an anxiety-ridden Jewish businessman, the mother an emotionally overpowering actress. The half-Jewish son has an artist's temperament and imagination, which the parents try to smother in the interests of security." Translated into English from the original German by Christopher Levenson.; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
