9780060959630: In Babylon: A Novel

First published in Holland to international critical acclaim, In Babylon is a story of storytelling -- a novel of universal, inescapable power. When Nathan Hollander and his niece Sophie find themselves trapped by snow in a house in the mountains, Nathan passes the time by recounting their family history. In this story within the story, Nathan's tale spans generations of a Jewish family as it wanders the globe: from Magnus, who began a twenty-one-year walk from Poland to Holland in 1648, to the itinerant clockmakers who followed him, to Manhattan's Project. Here are comic embarrassments, mystical puzzles, and grand adventure rolled together. Gloriously rich, quirky, and endlessly inventive, Marcel Möring's novel is epic on a very human scale.
