KIRKUS REVIEW

Scantily fictionized panorama of Europe as the lights go down and out. Subtitled, Memoirs of an Obscure Man, and told by a journalist who is traveling from country to country, just before the storm. Here is Germany and the rise of Fascist fanatics among the footloose post-war generation; Austria, before the Annexation, through a frivolous little actress and her Jewish friends; Czechoslovakia and two patriots firm in their conviction that France and England are behind them; finally, Budapest, as a quiet, Jewish journalist sees his race persecuted once more. There is no central story, but plenty of drama as Europe's landslides are reflected through little people. A tense, disillusioned picture of courage and idealism destroyed.
