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.

One of Europe's most innovative and admired thinkers and writers, Gabriel Josipovici has published more than a dozen novels, three volumes of short stories, several books of criticism, and plays that are widely performed throughout Europe. He lives in Lewes, England.
