Description

In the summer of 1938, young Traugott von Jassilkowski embarks on a social career that he hopes will take him to the heights of the German aristocracy. A cunningly devised wardrobe, a strategic courtship, important weekends with well-placed grandees, the right lunches and boozy evenings with Berlin's smart set: Will these carry him to the top or land him nowhere? In the scintillating narrative style for which he is justly celebrated, Gregor von Rezzori offers this cautionary about Germany atthe height of its most dangerous folly.
