Ein mitreissendes Geschichtsepos über die Kraft der Erinnerung und die Macht des Erzählens Ein junger Afroamerikaner, der in der Gesellschaft wieder Fuss zu fassen versucht; ein Holocaust-Überlebender, der auf dem Sterbebett die Vergangenheit aufleben lässt; ein Geschichtsdozent, der um seine Karriere und die grosse Liebe kämpft. Drei Schicksale, wie sie unterschiedlicher kaum sein können, verknüpfen sich in diesem Roman meisterhaft zu einer epischen Erzählung über Erinnerung, Liebe, Schuld und unerwartetes Heldentum. Elliot Perlman führt uns vom Polen der Kriegs-Ära über die amerikanische Bürgerrechtsbewegung der 1960er Jahre bis in das New York der Gegenwart und demonstriert uns, wie wichtig es bleibt, sich zu erinnern und Zeugnis abzulegen - denn Geschichte hat die Eigenschaft, sich zu wiederholen. Elliot Perlman wurde 1964 in Melbourne geboren. Er praktizierte einige Jahre als Anwalt, bis er nach dem Erfolg von 'Drei Dollar', seinem ersten Roman, nach New York zog, wo er sich ausschliesslich dem Schreiben widmete. Perlmans literarisches Werk ist preisgekrönt. Sein zweiter Roman 'Sieben Seiten der Wahrheit', der ihm international den Durchbruch bescherte, ist 2008 bei DVA erschienen und wurde von der Presse als 'grosse Literatur' (Deutschlandradio Kultur) gefeiert; sein dritter Roman wird voraussichtlich 2013 auf deutsch vorliegen. Elliot Perlman lebt heute wieder in Melbourne
