This would be an ideal read for a T.S.Eliot fan, or perhaps someone with a deep understanding of TS Eliot, fan or not. It is tightly written, a tad too esoteric for my tastes. It revolves around Matt, the archivist, his wife Judith and later Roberta, a TS Eliot scholar. It is set during and after WWII and relates to holocaust atrocities.I believe it was a first novel and as such it takes a huge bite into how guilt and passion affect the life of an otherwise compulsively ordered man.
