A STARTLING NOVEL OF INHUMANITY – PAST, PRESENT AND TO COME
‘IF THERE IS A MORAL TO THIS BOOK, IT IS A SIMPLE ONE: THERE ARE NO SIMPLE ANSWERS’
The terror of the Red Republic in nineteenth-century Paris; the atrocity of twentieth-century concentration camps; the uncertainty of the present, and the horrors of the future – these are just a few of Karl Glogauers’s macabre experiences as he is projected through time and space. Alternately victim, aggressor, and bystander, he rides the storm of inhumanity through the ages.
BREAKFAST IN THE RUINS is a shattering novel of cruelty and despair – science fantasy at its best, by an acknowledged master of the art.
