Waltenberg, by Hedi Kaddour, David Coward (Translator)
The hotel Waldhaus in the Swiss mountain village of Waltenberg is central to the action of this epic novel, which takes place in Europe from World War I to the collapse of the Soviet Union. This is a riveting novel of espionage and a major work of literature.
"Here is a French epic that drives headlong through the drama and horror of Europe in the past century – but does so on the chassis of a finely-engineered spy novel." - London Independent.
A spy novel combined with a book of ideas, this book covers the history of Europe from the First World War to 1991.
