THREE OVER THE FRONTIER

A somewhat incoherent and uneven book which attempts to tell, through the pages of a novel, the story of German emigres. There are three central figures, thrown together in somewhat dramatic and arbitrary fashion, a triangle formed of a wealthy industrialist, a young Communist and an unconventional Jewish girl of easy virtue; and the scene shifts across the map of Europe, a mad dance which never seems wholly real. The plot might be convincing, but the characters are puppets. There are some incisive scenes -- pictures of emigres in various cities --passages of fine writing -- but the book as a whole never comes to life.
