KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a symbolic story, in which the characters are nameless, the total effect shadowy, emerging as a nightmare of people caught in a helpless situation -- exile-refugees of todays holocaust, Jews and Gentiles, awaiting their fate in the no-man's land of the border, bound by international red tape. A doctor, a painter, a German ex-official, several women -- and finally, the German army advancing and carrying the little band before them. Hardship, privation, suffering, at the gates of safety. Not strictly a novel; not handled as non-fiction -- and not an easy book to place.
