KIRKUS REVIEW

A story of the breaking away of the younger generation from the tenets of their elders, a sympathetic, likable sort of tale, against a rich canvas. Post-war England and Italy -- a family of Austrian-English Jews, art dealers secure in traditions established in the past. The central character, Emmanuel, destined for success, discards everything for the satisfaction of the one great love of his life, and then discovers that he cannot return to the home nest, and adapt himself to the old codes. The market -- that of the chronicle novel.
