Descripción del libro

10 de julio de 2012

Vienna, 1938. Beautiful actress Julia Homburg and her politician husband Franz Wedeker embody all the enlightened brilliance of their native city. But Wedeker is Jewish, and just across the border the tanks of the Nazi Reich are primed for the Anschluss.

When the SS invades and disappearances become routine, Franz must be concealed. With daring ingenuity, Julia conjures a hiding place. In the shadow of oppression, a clear conscience is a luxury few can afford, and Julia finds she must strike a series of hateful bargains with the new order if she and her husband are to survive.

A highly acclaimed bestseller when first published in the 1960s, Night Falls on the City is a true lost classic, and an unforgettable portrait of wartime.

Críticas

A pleasure to read . . . a compellingly intimate portrait of Vienna from the Anschluss to the end of the Second World War, which captures its atmosphere of fear, mistrust, corruption and ultimate collapse. There are no heroics; instead Sarah Gainham offers a scrupulously detailed story of individuals forced through barbarism into chaos. (Helen Dunmore, bestselling author of The Siege and The Betrayal)

Brilliant and moving. (Simon Mawer, Man Booker-shortlisted author of The Glass Room)

A rare novel of beauty and scope and ambition ... without doubt Gainham's masterpiece (Kate Mosse, bestselling author of Labyrinth)

Contraportada

Vienna in 1938 is a place of high culture, gilded opera houses and intellectual salons. Beautiful actress Julia Homburg and her politician husband Franz Wedeker embody all the enlightened brilliance of their native city. But Wedeker is Jewish, and just across the border the tanks of the Nazi Reich are primed for the Anschluss.

When the SS invade, lists are drawn up and disappearances become routine, Franz must be concealed. With daring ingenuity, Julia conjures a hiding place. In the shadow of oppression the old certainties evaporate; the streets are full of spies and collaborators, allegiances shift and ancient hatreds resurface. A clear conscience is a luxury few can afford, and Julia finds she must strike a series of hateful bargains with the new order if she and her husband are to survive.

A highly acclaimed bestseller when first published in the 1960s, Night Falls on the City is a true lost classic, and an unforgettable portrait of wartime.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Completely absorbing 23 de junio de 2012

I was delighted to see this re released after so many years. This is a wonderful book which I first read in the 1960s. The characters are so real that when I visited Vienna shortly after reading it I expected to see Julia and her friends everywhere I went. Sarah Gainham was a central European correspondent for The Spectator for years and she had an intimate knowledge of life, society and customs in post war German speaking Central Europe, where many of her books are set. This is probably the greatest of them, and I really hope the sequels "A Place in the Country" and "Private Worlds" are also republished. Anyone who meets Julia will want to read the story to the end of the third volume. Although these are works of fiction Gainham said she frequently met people who insisted that they had known Julia Homburg- that should give you some idea of just how real is the world she recreated. This is a book in which the reader becomes completely absorbed.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Unusual masterpiece 6 de enero de 2013

i found this book by chance while looking throu the kindle lists. I read a summary,and found the style and the content of the highest quality.
The story is so tense but also very realistic and you feel a part of the scene; Historically,it was fascinating to be within the city of Vienna and see it and its population slowly crumble under the pressure of change.
There was a feeling of a play within a play by using a theatre company as the central characters.
I do not often want to read a book again but this one I will because there are so many nuances,easily missed at a first reading
