DON QUIXOTE IN EXILE by Peter Furst
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 1, 1996

Don Quixote In Exile ($39.95; paper $15.95; June 1996; 260 pp. 0-8101-1447-X, paper 0-8101-1448-8) This presumably autobiographical novel describes the extended odyssey of a German Jew who leaves his homeland in the 1930s, then spends many years of exile as a journalist careering throughout Europe and later the Caribbean. The places ``Peter'' visits (especially Monaco and Yugoslavia) are evoked with specificity and authority, but the character himself, despite occasional outbursts of iconoclastic wit, seems too morose and too passive a recorder to be a protagonist in whom many readers will take much interest.
