KIRKUS REVIEW

A biographical novel that chronicles the life of the author's Bavarian family, from the reign of Ludwig to that of Hitler. Details his family tree on both the Heimrath and Graf sides, concentrates on the picture of his mother, peasant born, poor, who saw her husband rise to affluence, who lived through the breakup of her family and country, and gives an eyewitness account of the beginnings and growth of Nazism and the Munich revolution in company of Kurt Eisner. Now an exile in this country. Graf solidly infinitesimalizes his personal and national background.
