Synopsis: Gerda, the former mistress of both Adolf Eichmann and Raoul Wallenberg, a Hungarian Jew whose once great beauty is fading in a Brooklyn apartment, Rella, her ugly and gullible daughter, and Jack, an upstairs neighbor, share an extraordinary past

From Library Journal: This ``memoir'' about Raoul Wallen berg consists of the reminiscences of two people who knew him in Budapest during the last years of the war. Gerda Green was a wine waitress at the Hotel Majestic, a sort of demilitarized zone where she became the mistress of both Raoul Wallenberg and Adolf Eich mann. Jack Baum was a master pastry chef at the same hotel. In the Fifties both end up living in Brooklyn, where Baum's love for Gerda's daughter draws them together. Their recollec tions are not of the Holocaust itself, but rather of fragile oases of civilization in an otherwise brutal world. Indeed, at one level this first novel is like a com pendium of esoteric Viennese pastry lore, make-up tips, and wine recom mendations. It sounds improbable, but Alexander succeeds in offering a fresh perspective on a familiar but still horri fying theme. Recommended. Edward B. St. John, Loyola Marymount Univ. Lib., Los Angeles
