Product Description:

One night in autumn 1944 a gunshot echoes through the alleyways of a small town in occupied Poland. An S.S. officer is shot dead by a young Polish Jew Margarita Ejzenstain. In retaliation his commander orders the execution of thirty-seven Poles - one for every year of the dead man's life. First hidden by a German couple Margarita must then flee the brutal advance of the Soviet army with her new-born baby. So begins a thrilling panorama of intermingled destinies and events that reverberate from that single act of defiance. KINGDOM OF TWILIGHT follows the lives of Jewish refugees and a German family resettled from Bukovina as well as a former S.S. officer chronicling the geographical and psychological dislocation generated by war. A quest for identity and truth takes them from Displaced Persons camps to Lubeck Berlin Tel Aviv and New York as they try to make sense of a changed world and of their place in it. Hypnotically lyrical and intensely moving Steven Uhly's epic novel is a finely nuanced and yet shattering exploration of universal themes: love hatred doubt survival guilt humanity and redemption. For readers of HHHH by Laurent Binet THE KINDLY ONES by Jonathan Littell THE ZONE OF INTEREST by Martin Amis and ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE by Anthony Doerr
