A glittering family saga of privilege and tragedy.
So rich in texture, so full of artistic and visual detail, that a whole lost central European world, and particularly its art, architecture and music, comes alive on the page.
A captivating tour-de-force.
[Good Living Street] tells a riveting three-generational family story without sentimentality that, because of the meticulousness of the research, displays a whole society to us, with habits, lifestyles, attitudes and aspirations so different from ours... It is essentially an essay on the human spirit, with all its angularities and complexities.
