Winterby Len Deighton
“What raises Deighton’s genre to art is not only his absorbing characters but his metaphoric grace, droll wit, command of technical detail . . . and sure sense of place.”—Washington Post
Peter and Paul Winter, sons of a German businessman, are bonded by childhood trauma. When they grow apart, only to meet again under the shadow of the Third Reich—and then again at the Nuremburg trials—they find themselves divided by war and differing ideals. In this expansive, rich, and deeply tragic portrait of a German family from 1899 to 1945, Len Deighton brilliantly weaves a portrait of the fortunes of two sons, and a nation, over half a century.
“Mr. Deighton’s touch is unfailing . . . Never a false note.”—The New York Times Book Review
“A monumental work . . . brilliantly executed.”—Daily Telegraph
