A collection of thirty interconnected stories, inspired by Bach's Goldberg Variations, is narrated by an English Jewish writer reading to an eighteenth-century country gentleman and offers a philosophical reflection on such topics as madness, marital discord, a poetic competition at the court of George III, incest, and more. Original. 25,000 first printing.

HARPERCOLL

At the turn of the eighteenth century, a writer—a Jew—enters an English country manor, where he has been invited to read through the night to his host until the gentleman falls asleep. What unfolds then are seemingly unconnected stories covering a vast array of topics—from incest to madness to a poetic competition in the court of George III. And what emerges by the end is a breathtaking tapestry in which past and present, imagination and truth, are intricately woven together into one remarkable whole.
