Inhaltsangabe: [Read by David Colacci]

From acclaimed novelist Mark Helprin comes a lush, literary epic about love, beauty, and the world at war. -- Alessandro Giuliani, the young son of a prosperous Roman lawyer, enjoys an idyllic life full of privilege: he races horses across the country to the sea, he climbs mountains in the Alps, and, while a student of painting at the ancient university in Bologna, he falls in love. Then the Great War intervenes. Half a century later, in August of 1964, Alessandro, a white-haired professor, tall and proud, meets an illiterate young factory worker on the road. As they walk toward Monte Prato, a village seventy kilometers away, the old man -- a soldier and a hero who became a prisoner and then a deserter, wandering in the hell that claimed Europe -- tells him how he tragically lost one family and gained another. The boy, envying the richness and drama of Alessandro's experiences, realizes that this magnificent tale is not merely a story: it's a recapitulation of his life, his reckoning with mortality, and above all, a love song for his family.

Über den Autor: MARK HELPRIN was educated at Harvard, Princeton, Columbia, and Oxford. He served in the Israeli Infantry Corps, Israeli Air Force, and British Merchant Navy. He is the acclaimed author of Winter's Tale, A Soldier of the Great War, Freddy and Fredericka, The Pacific, Ellis Island, Memoir from Antproof Case, and numerous other works. His novels are read around the world, translated into over twenty languages.
